[CQ-Contest] NS RTTY this Thursday

Wed Jan 25 00:41:28 EST 2017
Good group last week with newcomers AJ4XP (Bob) and AA7V (Steve) in for the first time. KB1RI and K2XA were also back for more sprinting fun. AA7V is a CW regular, so he’s joining the ranks of the “2 Sprints per night” group (somewhat exclusive, BTW).
The upcoming weekend has one of the more fast paced RTTY tests on tap: BARTG Sprint. This one is only the standard speed, but short exchanges and (hopefully) good participation should make for a great 24 hours of keyboarding.
What? You’re not sure if your RTTY setup is working? Well, join in on Thursday evening and give it a test. You’ll still have all day Friday to fix things!
Here’s the usual list of times, rules and extra notes for our usual Thursday soiree.
