The NCCC invites all of you to participate in this week's two SSB Sprint practices.

Thursday, February 3
7:30pm-8:00pm PST - Sprint SSB practice

Friday, February 4
6:30pm-7:00pm PST - Sprint SSB practice

Suggested frequencies: 3850, 7225, 14275 kHz +/-
Please be courteous to ongoing QSOs. Given the QSY nature of Sprint, it's easy to step on someone by mistake. Let's avoid frequency fights with ragchewers during the practices.

Sprint mini-contest practice sessions are great to:
*Try getting into the rhythm of a Sprint contest
*Reduce Sprint intimidation factor
*Test logging software and digital voice keyer
*Practice using 2 radios in a Sprint environment
