The Last Spring 2015 SPRINT (Mini-Contest) will be held on 6 meters (50.000 - 
53.999 MHz) on Saturday afternoon/evening, 09 May 2015, from 4:00 PM  - 8:00 PM 
PDT (2300Z 09 May 2015 - 0300Z 10 May 2015.)                       

 This is a great chance to exercise your gear for this band, see whom else is 
on the air, and see how far away you can work. The Sporadic E Season has begun, 
so there might be opportunities to make contact with stations at distances from 
400 miles - 3000 miles! SSB, CW, FM, etc are all permitted, but repeater use is 
not permitted.   
Note: Most SSB activity will be at 50.125 - 50.200 MHz. Most CW will be noted 
from 50.090 - 50.100 MHz; some FM Simplex might be heard on 52.525 MHz FM 
 Scoring is Number of QSOs (Contacts) times Number of Grids Worked.   
    Please refer to complete rules & log submission info at: 
or send questions to N6ZE@aol.com    
 Note: N6ZE plans to operate from Thousand Oaks, CA for this SPRINT: I hope to 
make QSOs with lots of stations!

 Note:   Other Spring 2015 SPRINTS were previously held on the 144 MHz, 222 
MHz, 420 MHZ, & Microwave bands.
