The North American QSO Party on RTTY will be Saturday Feb 25, 2017. 
Party-time is 1800 UTC February 25 to 0600 UTC February 26, 2017. 
California-time that's Saturday February 25 from 10 AM to 10 PM PST. 

The friendly exchange is a Name and State (or Province or Country). 
Five bands, 10m to 80m. QSOs and Multipliers count again on each band! 
"Move" someone to another band for more Points and Multipliers! 
Rules, records, results and more at the National Contest Journal: 

Any club or group can form a Team of two to five single-operators. 
Register your Team before the contest starts at the "Team Registration"

RTTY Practice sessions are available on Thursday and Friday nights: 

Thursday night, the weekly NCCC Sprint on RTTY: 
5:45 PM PST (0145 UTC Friday) for 30 minutes. 
This follows the North American Sprint exchanges and NS rules. 

Friday night, February 24 NAQP RTTY Practice: 
7:00 PM PST (0300 UTC Saturday) for 30 minutes. 
Use your NAQP messages and the bands that are open for you. 

Then, the NAQP starts Saturday morning, 1800 UTC (10AM PST). 

I am also interested in any good stories and photos of your operation, 
especially photos of  the happy operator, or group of operators. 

After the contest, upload your log on the NCJ's "Upload Logs" page, 
which helps you get full credit for your efforts. 
Logs are due in 5 days, ending Friday March 3 at 0600UTC. 

See you on RTTY, Saturday February 25!
