Greetings Diddlers:

OK, this is your last chance to check things out before the upcoming RTTY RU. Yes, there will likely be a practice session on Friday evening, but why wait until the last minute? Join us on Thursday, fix the broken stuff on Friday, and then join the practice session!

We had a great group last week, with newcomers KW7N, K2XA and KL4SD (with KL7TH operating).  I think this was a first for the AK mult. It’s still mostly a low band affair, but hopefully with some longer days we’ll get back the higher bands in a bit.

Here’s the usual list of times, rules and extra notes for our usual Thursday soiree.

Friday,  6 Jan 2017, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 5 Jan 2017 in NA)
-- 1745 - 1815 PST
-- 2045 - 2115 EST
-- (others in-between those two)
-- 160: 1805 and up (Last two minutes seem to be popular…)
-- 80/40/20/15 +80kHz up from the band edge
-- Same band dupes ok after 1 intervening Q.
-- 1 kHz QSY rule, otherwise standard Sprint rules
-- Mults per band
-- 100W power limit
