Anyone want to do a team for NAQP?  If we get 20 guys, I'll split up the
teams as evenly as I can and we'll have an Internet sub-competition.  Let me
know if you are interested and what kind of score/time you will make/have.

BTW... This is CW, not SSB.  2nd Saturday of the new year.


Bill, KM9P

Happy Holidays to all!  On the question of statute versus nautical miles, the ARRL uses statute miles.  If a measurement is submitted in nautical miles (some of the Pratas Island docs were), they are converted before any action is taken.
        I am not convinved that we should think about consolidating the Single-op and Single-op/Assisted categories.  The allegation that the top single-op guys use packet anyway is not to be taken lightly.  I for one would be pretty pissed-off if that's how someone thought I won a Single-op contest.  In all of the recently published results, the SOA entries always have less Q's and more mults than the Single-op entries.  It's not hard to figure out who's doing what and when they're doing it it!

I'm sorry for the previous message which went out mangled!

Concerning the Single Op. operation is it allowed to watch national TV
broadcasts during the contest or is it taking me to S.O. Assisted 
category ?

The reason for asking this is that we can see the DX cluster infos on
normal TV (text-TV page460), hi.  I presume that is compared to packet
radio.  Are there any text-TV, teletext, videotext or whatever where you
could include the cluster infos ?

Subject: LOGCFG.DAT For Internet SprINT
Message-ID: <9312280643.AA13390 at greylock.local>

Several logs from the last Internet SprINT had commented that the op had
tried using Tree/N6TR's "LOG" program, but had been overwhelmed by the
learning curve.  That happened to me, too.  And I found that practicing LOG
-- with or without the simulator -- required having a decent configuration
file whth reasonable messages and features.

Anyway, in order to promote SprINT activity, I thought I'd make available a
LOGCFG.DAT file for the Internet SprINT.  It's heavily annotated with useful
details -- like which buttons to hit when.  It's about 160 lines.  A sample
excerpt is appended below.

E-mail to k2mm at gets a copy.  73, and CU Sunday.  --John/K2MM

; Method 2 -- S&P in ANY mode -- works with simulator OK; lets you dump in
; your call before typing in callsign.
;     2a. Copy call in your head.  Leave call window empty.
;     2b. Check for dupe in editable log.
;  ** 2c. Hit <SPACE> to send your call.  Now in S&P mode.
;     2d. Type call into call window.
;  ** 2e. Hit <TAB> to put cursor in exchange window.
;  ** Never hit <SPACE> with both callsign and cursor in call window.  If
;     you've worked the station before, LOG will call it a dupe and flush
;     the call.  Also applies to <CR>, but only in S&P mode.
