NS RTTY this Thursday

Ken K6MR

Greetings Diddlers:

Combining the 3830 reports with a couple of non-reporting stations put us into double digits.  Welcome back to W4EIS/5 who has been gone for a few months.


The upcoming weekend has the BARTG RTTY Sprint for your fun and entertainment.  A couple of reminders:  No signal report in this exchange, just serial number.  And for you N1MM aficionados, the proper contest is BARTGRTTYS.


And thanks to K8JT for submitting the scoring bug that has been in N1MM+ for NSRTTYDUPE and SPRINTLADD for a while.  It is fixed in the latest release.

So if you need to check things out before the weekend, please join us and keep those keyboarding skills up to snuff:
