The 3rd annual Collegiate Championship will once again be held
during the CW and Phone Sweepstakes competition.  This event
provides college radio clubs with an opportunity to compete
head on with other college clubs.

The rules for the event are below.  The rules allow for alumni
to operate so please consider helping your alma mater's club
get back on the air and beat their rivals.

Each of the last two events have had their results listed in
QST and a more detailed writeup has appeared in the National
Contest Journal.  Don't let your college club be left out.


Third Annual North American Collegiate
Amateur Radio Club Championship

1. Object: To encourage college and university stations
in all ARRL (American Radio Relay League) and RAC
(Radio Amateurs of/du Canada) sections to participate
in the ARRL November Sweepstakes and compete against
other college and university radio clubs.

2. Contest Rules: CW portion takes place on first full
weekend of November (Nov 2-4),  phone portion takes place
on third full weekend of November (Nov 16-18).  Both start
on Saturday 2100 UTC and end on Monday 0300 UTC. All rules,
as stated in the October issue of QST,  pertain to this
collegiate competition.  Participation limited to clubs at
institutions of higher learning beyond the high school level.

3. Station Location: In an effort to encourage club station
improvements all contacts must be made from the established
club radio station located on a college campus.  No
"portable" operation from a nearby contest "super station".
A club may operate from a member's station provided that a
club station on campus does not exist.

4. Results:  Separate champions will be determined for CW,
phone and combined scores.  Official results will be based
on those published in QST so all contestants must submit a
valid log to the ARRL.  Contestants must also submit a score
summary (the contest summary sheet, NOT a complete log!) to
the collegiate contest moderator.  Provisional scores and
winners will be posted on the ham-univ and cq-contest
Internet mail reflectors by the moderator.

Does anybody know if CQ magazine is accepting  the log via internet?
If yes, which files (CT program) and to whom (e-mail) should I send the log 
after the CQWW contest?

Subject: WANTED:  Revised CT.HLP file (*not* the one that comes with CT)
Message-ID: <9610241519.AA12979@sttng.databook.com>

There was a 9-land station who revised the CT.HLP file.  I had uploaded the 
file to the VE7TCP web site, but since it is down, I have no way of getting a 
copy of the file.

Did anyone download this file?  If you did, can you please E-mail it to me, so 
that I can put it on the backup site @databook.com for others to download?

Thanks - Jim AD1C

My comrades, WX9E and N0BSH have returned to St. Martin, FS
to operate a Multi-Single in CQ WW SSB using their host's call,
FS5PL.  They are currently there and have been quite active on the
bands especially on the low bands and WARC.  They are currently
signing FS/homecall and QSL via their homecalls.  They are returning
to the states on Oct. 29th.

ONLY for 1996 ARRL CW & SSB and 1996 CQ WW SSB

Other FS5PL QSLs to KG0UI or FG5BG

Say...I don't think that there's a broad understanding of which countries
have Novice-type licensing classes, and what their allocations are!  Any
of you non-US stations out there, please send me your Novice allocations
and I'll post a summary...maybe not in time for WW, but soon.

In Brazil the Novice privilege for SSB ranges from 28300 - 28500. The
callsign for this kind station is PU<number><3characters>. For example

Message-ID: <9610241730.AA13561@sttng.databook.com>

Thanks to K8JLF and John Bednar (call?) for sending me the file.  If you're 
interested, the start of the file looks like:

Alt-H         Display this HELP window
Alt-Q         Save log and QUIT |
Alt-X         Save log and eXit |
<ENTER>       Log a contact


The original CT.HLP file start like this:

Alt Q   QUIT
<CR>    Log a call/contact
Space   MOVE    to exchange field
Tab     MOVE    to next field          


WE9V thought it was KE9I who made the file.  I thought it was an AA9 call.  
Maybe the author will step forward and take credit.

There are two ways to get the file:

1.  ftp://boss.databook.com/AD1C/ct.hlp

2.  Send E-mail to ct-user-REQUEST@databook.com, and put "GET ct.hlp"
    in the body of the message.

If my memory serves me correctly, the file needs to start with a single blank 
line before "BASIC KEY/FUNCTION COMMANDS" so that all the screens of HELP line 
up properly in the HELP window (ALT-H).  If you FTP the file, you should be 
OK.  If you extract it from E-mail, don't forget to leave a single blank line 
at the top.

p.s. I will be unavailable for CT support Friday, 10/25.
     Good luck to everyone in the contest!
