To all RTTY aficionados:
Please join us in this week's half hour NS RTTY(aka NCCC Sprint contest, RTTY mode), Thursday evening local time (Friday0145Z).
Last week, we had another good group ofparticipants, and a rare multiplier (HH2AA) for some of the lucky ones.
Again, a few entrants last week forgot to submittheir scores to www.3830scores.com at the end of the contest. Please dothat. Reporting your score, whether itbe big or small, helps build enthusiasm for this event. That in turn increasesparticipation for future editions, which benefits all of us.
For those of you using the popular N1MM+ logger,the contest module to use is NSRTTYDUPE. If you need a proven set offunction keys, let me know and I’ll be happy to share mine with you.
Remember to try 15 meters at the beginning ofthis Thursday night's contest – 15 has often been open at 0145Z as of late.
