NS RTTY this Thursday

Ken K6MR

Greetings Diddlers:

Nothing surprising about the almost infinitesimal turnout last week.  Thanks to AD4TJ, KG5U, and W6SX for keeping the bands warm while the rest of us were eating (or sleeping off what we ate earlier!).  Let’s see if we can all do better this week.


I don’t see anything RTTY this weekend, but there is the FT Roundup, sponsored by W0YK and AA5AU.  Remember that the RTTY Roundup will include FT modes this year so getting this mode to work may be useful.


Please join us Thursday evening for 30 minutes of some old style RTTY contesting.

Friday,  6 Dec 2019, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday, 5 Dec 2019 in NA)
-- 1745 - 1815 PST
-- 2045 - 2115 EST
