To all RTTY ops:

 Don’t forget to participate in this week's half hour NS RTTY (NCCC Sprint contest, RTTY mode) this Thursday evening localtime (Friday 0145Z).  It’s a halfhour of action packed RTTY fun.
Last week's version of this contest featured a shootout between two top ops:  W0YK operating remotely from K6MTU, and WD6T operating from N6RO.  Each had 16 mults.  The lead kept seesawing throughout the 30 minutes.  When all was said and done, W0YK had 50 contacts, and WD6T had 49!  It doesn't get any closer than that!  50 contacts in a half hour, folks -- that a rate of 100/hour!  How many RTTY contests do you know of where the rate is 100/hour?  It helped that both of these ops were using the new 2BSIQ technique, something that only a few have been able to master.
Everyone else who operated last week also had a ton of fun.  Just ask someone who has ever been in this weekly contest, and they will agree. 

 For those of you usingthe N1MM+ logger, the contest module to use is NSRTTYDUPE.  If you need a good set of function keys, letme know and I’ll be happy to share mine with you. Remember to try 15meters at the beginning of this Thursday night's contest -- it's been open at0145Z!

 Also, please submit your score to 3830 online at the end of the contest. Reporting your score, whether it be modest or awesome, helps buildenthusiasm for this contest.
