NAQCC Sprint Wednesday night!
Our November sprint is this coming Wednesday evening local time (November 14,
EST - 8:30-10:30PM, CST - 7:30-9:30PM, MST - 6:30-8:30PM, PST - 5:30-7:30PM),
which translates as Thursday November 15, 0130-0330Z in all cases.
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 and DX
for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers (New!). A Certificate for top score in
the GAIN antenna category. Starting in November we are adding an extra
category called SPECIAL for those folks. If that description fits you, you
will be able to select that division and compete against others in the same
situation. That will be taken care of via our autologger. As with the other
categories and divisions, we'll also award a 2nd and 3rd place certificate
according to the same criteria.
Prizes: Too many to list!! - We're making a change in our prize drawing for
the sprints. Here's a quote from the prizes page, under the main section, on
the web site:
"Beginning with the November 2012 sprint, a winner will be notified as soon as
one is chosen. Then the first to reply gets the first choice of a prize.
Before that we went by order of sprints. In other words, the June winner had
to wait for the May winner to make his choice, etc. Now it's first response,
first choice no matter what month. That way those who take forever to answer
won't hold up those who are eager to get their prize. If someone doesn't reply
at all by the end of the following month, there will be a re-drawing to choose
a replacement winner for that sprint, and the one who didn't reply becomes
ineligible for any future drawings. For example, the June winner has until the
end of July to respond."
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.
