NS RTTY this Thursday
Ok, just a few days until the real thing! Close up the packet software, limber up the tuning knob, the RTTY Sprint is at hand. Got all those macros in place? Remember which macro to use when?
Join us Thursday evening for a real-time simulation of the Sprint. I know, dupes aren’t part of the real thing. But you are just testing the system, so go for it!
Second warning: DST will switch early on Sunday morning, so change your alarms so you don’t show up an hour early next week.
Here’s the usual list of times, rules and extra notes for our usual Thursday soiree.
