N6ZFO asked me to up-date info on the NCCC-sponsored practice micro-sprint
on Friday night:
03Z (1900 PST/2200 EST): Check in/listen on/near 3830 for last-minute
strategy discussions. All welcome.
0315Z: 15 minute micro-sprint on 40 and 75m (7220+/- 20 and 3830 +/- 20)
0330Z: Rehash, critique, Q/A session.
Basic strategy is to S & P to make one QSO, acquire the frequency and get
another one. Only CQ when a band has been worked out, or an obvious clear
freq. shows up as you tune for a new 'target' QSO. Don't sweat the mults,
they will come (or not).
Print out these messages with your own info and tape to your bench to help
you get started. The flow of the information is different in the two
'modes' of making a QSO. Practice at bit before the micro and the 'real
thing' on Saturday.
NA SPRINT MESSAGES:
1. When called by someone after CQ or after acquiring the frequency:
"His Call" N6RO #___ KEN CA
2. After acquiring the frequency (can only happen after you have called
'His Call' #_____ KEN CA N6RO
Putting your call at the end of this message tells the world you have
acquired the frequency and welcome someone to call. When someone does
call, send msg. #1.
Much more referral info is in an earlier message from our sprint
coordinator, WX5S, and at: http://n6tr.jzap.com/sprint.html Is your
Have fun, N6RO
