NINTH INTERNET CW SPRINT CONTEST
Contest period: 02:00:00Z to 04:00:00Z on Thursday December 28th UTC. This
is Wednesday evening in the USA.
Bands: 80 and 40 meters only (this is a real radio contest, no internet).
Suggested frequencies are 3530-3550 and 7030-7050.
Max power output: 150 watts at transmitter output connector.
Exchange: Consecutive QSO number (starting with one), name and state
or province or DXCC country (if outside W/VE). The name for
the first QSO is your name. For every QSO afterwards, the name
you send is the name you received in the previous QSO.
Call: CQ INT
The standard sprint QSY rule must be followed. This means that if you
solict a QSO (ie: with CQ or QRZ), after completing the QSO, you must
QSY at least 1 kHz before calling another station, or 5 kHz before
solicting another QSO.
Both callsigns must be sent during the exchange. Only one signal at a
time please and all QSOs are to take place on CW. All information
submitted must have been decoded during the contest. The use of post
contest detection or verification techniques or systems is not allowed.
Also, do not make round robin type QSOs. It will be very easy to spot
these with the names floating around. A round robin QSO is one where
you should QSY, but instead hang around to work the station who is
QSOing the station you gave the frequency to.
You may work the same station multiple times provided they are separated
by at least 3 other QSOs in both logs (regardless of band). For example,
if WN4KKN works N6TR, KKN must work at least 3 other stations before he
can work TR again. TR must also work 3 stations before working KKN
again. Changing bands does not eliminate the three QSO requirement.
The three QSOs must not be dupes themselves.
You must not work the same station or stations using any kind of schedule
or system. It is the intent of the dupe rule to make sure we don't run out
of stations to work. It is NOT the intent of this rule for you to change how
you would operate the contest if dupes were not allowed. If, in the log
checkers opinion, you have not lived up to the intent of this rule, your
log will be disqualified!!
Total score is the number of contacts you make. Any QSO found to be
defective in anyway will be removed from both logs (yes, if someone
miscopies your exchange, you won't get credit for the QSO, so QRS a
Please refrain from using vulgar or inappropriate names. If you receive
one of these names, feel free to either edit it or replace it with your
starting name. Make sure to make a note in your log so we know what you did.
Injecting the contest with an inappropriate name (in the log checker's
opinion) will result in a 1000 point penalty per occurrence. Examples of
inappropriate names may be found on MTV and generally start with the
Additional penalties will be assessed to people who work a significant number
of QSOs, but don't turn a log in. They will be given minus one point
for each QSO that we can verify actually occurred.
Logs must be sent in ASCII format via internet to n6tr at cmicro.com within
72 hours of the end of the contest. Figuring out how to send in your
log on the internet is PART OF THE CONTEST. If you need help, we will
try to assist the best we can.
Logs must show the band, time, station worked, number sent, number received,
name received and QTH received for each QSO. Also, please tell me the
name you start the contest with. We will assume the name you send is the
name received on your previous QSO, so you don't have to show that.
Results will be publised on CQ-CONTEST within 2 weeks of the contest. Logs
are checked using the K2MM LogZap software system. All checked logs will
be made available by FTP except for those requested by the submitter to
be kept private. Decisions of the judging committe are final and arbitrary.
Good luck, tell a friend and HAVE FUN!!

If anyone is interested in reprinting all or parts of Bill Leonard's
(W2SKE) 1958 Sports Illustrated article "Battle of the Hams" about
international amateur radio contesting, please send me an email. I have
obtained a blanket permission from Norma Leonard (Bill's widow and personal
representative of his estate) for the article to be re-published in any
amateur radio-related publication (print or electronic media). This
includes national ham magazines and club newsletters. I have also cleared

Recent messages about Non-Amateur beacons inside Amateur bands which
are easily identified has helped with my CONTEST station.
I was aware of the GNI1 beacon on 3517.5 (Tnx DG)
Here's what I have observed over the past few evenings with a 400'
newly terminated beverage CONTEST receiving antenna:
Callsign Frequency Strength as measured in Seekonk,MA
GNI1 3517.5 S5
GKE1 3543.5 S9+
GKZ1 3607.5 S5
GKY1 3616.2 S9+10db
GKR2 1924.2 S1
Naturally, there will be further attempts to validate these as
additions to the CQ Amateur Radio Alamanac.

You should feel lucky to get your January issue. I'm still waiting for my
December issue. It's pretty bad when I can get it off the news stand before
it shows up in the mail.

Exactly the same occurs here in Hawaii. I can buy CQ at Borders
Book Store at least 3 weeks before mine comes in the mail.
But that is my fault, as I don't wamt to add another $30 per
year to my subsscription cost to get First Class/Priority Mail
delivery! Somehow the bulk shipments to Borders and
others must go by air express. Regular magazine delivery
in Hawaii must await the filling of a Matson container in
Oakland be fore being on-loaded to a ship. Then when
the container gets to Honolulu, since the stuff is book-rate,
the container may not be unloaded for many days. Then
the process begins all over again, before the books &
magazines are sent over here to Kauai on a barge, being
loaded into another sea going container! I might just drop my
magazine subscritions, and just buy them in town!
