     For many years now, during the ARRL November Sweepstakes, college 
and university clubs have gotten on the air from campuses around the country 
to compete against one another.  This year, the Collegiate Championship is 
on 2-3 November 2002 (CW,) and then the weekend of the 16-17 November 2002 
(phone.)  Some of the schools will be entering S, others will be M, U, A, B,
or Q.  Many will be sending older check numbers, reflecting their early 
contributions to ham radio through organized on-the-air activity.  Look for
checks in the teens, the twenties, and the thirties!  Details are online at 

     So far, the following are known to be planning to operate the contest,
in either CW, SSB, or both modes:

  W0YC University of Minnesota 
 K5UTD University of Texas at Dallas
WA1VMU Boston University
  W5AC Texas A&M University
  N5XU University of Texas at Austin
WB9QFW University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point
 W4AQL Georgia Tech
KB1GTB University of Connecticut School of Law
 W0EEE University of Missouri at Rolla
  ...and certainly several others...

    If you don't see your alma mater or local college on the list, help
encourage their ham radio operators to get in on the fun!  It's still 
over two weeks until the phone contest weekend - plenty of time to get
a plan together.
