NAQCC Sprint Wednesday night!
Our May sprint is this coming Wednesday evening local time (8:30-10:30 p.m.
E.D.T.), which is Thursday, May 19, 0030-0230z.
I will refer you to the proper URL:
There you will find all the details as to time, frequencies and other important
Certificates: SWA (simple wire antennas) certificates by call area, VE, DX, and
if anyone has a 160M gain antenna, a certificate in the GAIN category as well.
Prizes: Too many to list! Full details at naqcc.info/main_giveaways.html
This is a monthly event that caters to the CW veteran, the CW newcomer,
straight key and bug fans. All are welcome to participate (this includes QRO);
but you must use QRP power levels to compete for awards.
For those on the other side of the Atlantic, the next European Chapter sprint
will be held on the 8th of June, 2011. The European Sprints bring the fun and
excitement of the US sprints to those unable to take part due to the barriers
of distance and time zone. Most of the rules for the US sprints apply, the main
difference being the time at which they are held. For more details (including
times, exchange and frequency) please see the rules on the website:
Those outside of Europe are also very welcome to participate. We have already
seen the first transatlantic QSOs, proving just how effective the CW/QRP
combination is over a long distance.
