NS RTTY this Thursday

Ken K6MR

Greetings Diddlers:

An even dozen stations reporting last week.  It seemed to be an evening for the east coast last week, with top scores going to our big three in the east.  Welcome to first timer (to our get together) Max, KH6ZM.  A well known call in contest circles jumped right in with the really rare HI mult.


The upcoming weekend has the SP DX RTTY test, as well as the BARTG 75 baud Sprint.  The BARTG is not quite our idea of a Sprint, but only 4 hours and no signal report.  If you’ve never tried 75 baud you should jump in just to experience the rush.


So join us Thursday evening and give those diddles a test.

Here are the details for our usual Thursday evening (in NA)  get together.

Friday,  26 Apr 2019, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 25 Apr 2019 in NA)
