OK, we've all been practicing for a whole year: let's see who has their 'A'
game ready. RTTY Sprint Ladder begins this week. We have five sessions
scheduled, and we'll use the best 3 for the rankings.
The schedule is Sept 4, 11, 18, 25, and Oct 9 (Oct 2 is skipped due to CQP
on the weekend).
We are keeping the dupe rule for this Ladder. I know a few people have
expressed reservations about dupes, but at the moment we really don't have
enough stations every week to keep activity up. If you've joined in sometime
during the past year, join us again and let's see some big Q totals. If you
have not joined us, jump in and impress us all with your RTTY expertise!
Solar conditions seem to have improved a little, so here's hoping for some
15 activity. I finally had my noise problem fixed, so I'm hoping for some
quiet conditions on the low bands.
Details are as usual:
Friday, 4 Sept 2015, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 3 Sept 2015 in NA)
-- 1845 - 1915 PDT
-- 2145 - 2215 EDT
-- (others in-between these two)
-- 160: 1805 and up
-- 80/40/20/15 +80kHz up from the band edge
-- Same band dupes ok after 1 intervening Q.
-- 1 kHz QSY rule, otherwise standard Sprint rules.
-- 100W power limit.

comments and questions (and dinner menus).
