[RTTY] CQ WPX RTTY Practices

Thu Feb 6 02:13:00 EST 2014

Thursday afternoon and evening, NA time:

2200-2230Z, Thursday, 6 February (convenient for Europe)
0300-0330Z, Friday, 7 February

These practices are a good way to check out your station to be sure all the
hardware, software and operating techniques are working well before the
starting bell at 0000Z on Saturday, 8 February.

Use the bands that are open for you and use the actual messages you will use
in the contest.  That is, send serial numbers and be prepared for innocent
bystanders to inform you that the contest hasn't yet begun.

Conditions for the weekend are forecast to be excellent, so get on and have
some fun!
