NCCC PRACTICE SPRINT continues this week, Dec. 20, local date in
North America; Dec. 21, UTC.
K4BAI and others suggest that we limit activity to 80 and 160m in
preparation for Stew Perry on the 29th (also RAC on 28th) , yet
retain 80m for continuing SO2R practice. Also, since SP allows HP,
LP and QRP, let's do that this week and next. Check out your
beverages (wires and wines)!
--30 mins 0330-04Z (all NCCC practice sessions will be the same
LOCAL START time, year round, UFN)
-- Start 0330Z (1930 PST, 2030 MST, 2130 CST 2230 EST)
This Thursday, use NS (NCCC Sprint) rules using TWO bands:
BANDS: 80, 160m: -- 3540, 1815 +/-5. SPREAD OUT!!
We will drop 20m during the dark months, except the week of NAQP and
Sprint. Probably add it back in March. 40m will be added back before
the NAQP in January.
