To all RTTY ops: 

Please join us in this week's half hour NS RTTY(North American Sprint contest, RTTY mode, sponsored by the Northern CaliforniaContest Club), Thursday evening local time (Friday 0145Z).  
Last week, newcomers W5JE and WB4YDL joined us.  Welcome, and we  hope to see you again!  Non-North American stations can work us also,in which case the North American station can count the DX station as a validQSO point.

 Again, a few entrants last week did not submittheir scores to www.3830scores.com at the end of the contest.  It’s easy –just submit your score to this Website under “NCCC RTTY Sprint – June 24”.  Reporting your score, whether it be big orsmall, 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 lately.
