Plan now for a good time in the NAQP RTTY on Saturday February 24, 2018. 
It's 12 hours of fun on 5 bands! Well okay, its only 10 hrs out of 12 for Single-ops, 
and only 4 bands out of 5 with no 10 meter band opening - but it's still fun! 
The exchange of Name and State (Province/Country) lets you connect with old 
friends, or be surprised by a new and unexpected name! 

You'll find the Rules, Team Registration, and more at the National Contest Journal: 
<http://ncjweb.com/naqp/> www.ncjweb.com/naqp/ 

Any club or group of friends can form a Team of two to five single-operators. 
Team Registration starts Feb 17th (7 days before the contest) and must 
be complete before the contest starts, using the "Team Registration" link at: 
<http://ncjweb.com/rttynaqpteamreg/>  http://ncjweb.com/rttynaqpteamreg/ 
Start recruiting your Team now! 

RTTY Practice will be available both Thursdays, and one Friday night: 

Thursday nights, there is 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 23 we'll have an actual NAQP RTTY Practice: 
9:30PM EST, 6:30PM PST, (0230 UTC Saturday) for 30 minutes. 
Use your NAQP messages and the bands that are open for you: 
14.080, 7080 and 3580 kHz and up as needed. Get the bugs out before 
Saturday morning!
