In 1994 the EU Sprint Gang (I2UIY, OK2FD, DL6RAI, and G4BUO) organized  the
first European Sprint contests. For 2001 there have been some rule changes,
introducing an awards programme and bringing the Spring Sprints forward  in
the  calendar.  You can find past scores and other  information  about  the
sprints  by  visiting  the official EU Sprint web  site  at  this  address:
The BIG news is that now we will award a certificate to the winners in each
country but this is not all. Three nice plaques will be awarded for the top
three scores from all four contests combined. Therefore, please red  circle
the  four EU Sprint saturdays on your calendar, we will be looking for  you
starting April 14!
