TODAY IS CW SPRINT - "THEE GREATEST 4 HOURS IN RADIO!"
At 0000z the CW Sprint contest will bring the bands to a ROAR.
**Many are pushing for that elusive 400 Q Count, and with YOUR help it's possible. Consider tuning the bands and passing out a few points.
Friends and familiar callsigns will fire up their radios and fill 20, 40, & 80m
with a frenzy of excitement. Side by side; you will hear the scattered pile ups,
all with the desire to work WAS + DX in 4 hours!
WILL YOU HELP BY GETTING ON, EVEN FOR A FEW MINUTES ?
We need more help from: VE1, 2, 4, RI, ND, DE, SC, ALA, VE8, and ALL NORTH AMERICAN DX Countries. (Caribbean, Central America all counts)
You will hear signals from Barbados to Guatemala, PEI to W6 to KL7 / VY1, and all in between, there is something for everyone.
HAVE A FEW MINUTES OF FUN, TURN ON THAT RADIO & FIND YOUR FRIENDS! Call CQ and see what happens! Today at 0000z.
Even the most serious competitor will race the entire pack and still get back to
the family in time for "Gone with the Wind" and hot popcorn.
Remember, this contest was made with the little guy in mind, the city lot and wires station can have a blast. You'll be surprised the action you can create.
Please join us tonight at 0000z-0400z on 20, 40, & 80m.

A little more:
The hour where most struggle is 0200-0300 hour... on 20 & 40m. If you can only get on for a short period of time, that would be the time.
Contest Starts: 0000Z or 4pm Pacific - Ends 0400Z or 8pm Pacific
Many migrate to 40m by 0100-0200 Another migration to 80m around 0245-0400
