Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to dust off those green keys on your Model 28and join us in this week's half hour NS RTTY (NCCC Sprint contest, RTTY mode),this Thursday evening local time (Friday 0145Z).
Now that everyone is back from Dayton, we shouldhave our full complement of regulars back with us. And rumor has it that one or two newbies aregetting ready to dip their toes into the Sprint waters.
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 modest or spectacular, helps build enthusiasm for this event, and increasesparticipation for future editions.
For those of you using the N1MM+ logger, thecontest module to use is NSRTTYDUPE. If you need a good set of functionkeys, 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 is often open at 0145Z.
