RE the writeup of the NAQP in the current issue of NCJ;

The Florida Contest Group is pleased to gather we were fourth in the Team

The number five score shown for the Tennessee Contest Group is one of our
own! - It is Jeff WC4E's score from station AC4NJ....Jeff, our
Secretary-Treasurer, is the one who turned in our club submission and it
appears he is on one of our competitors' teams - don't get me wrong they
have a great name, but:

As with any printed contest reporting error, we the Florida Contest Group
seek acknowledgement of this grievous error...the REAL #5 score on the
Tennessee Contest Group is 'proximately 54K - I guess....is it WA6KUI?? heah
- it says he is a Schwinger in the Team Scores....We're all confused, Bob.

Please re-evaluate the Team Scores box. I know, don't you hate this part of
the job....all I can say is: 20 years ago I was "in your shoes".....
The Florida Contest Group looks forward to seeing all of you come August

By gully Jim, you're right!

	Having just received my NCJ, I see the grievous error Jim is referring 
to and I'll clear things up now.  The tabulation of team members and their 
scores was correct when submitted for publishment, but somehow WA6KUI/4 and 
AC4NJ's scores were shifted to the left by one team/column.  A missing "TAB" 
or something like that I suspect!  Placing WA6KUI/4 in the Tennessee Contest 
Group #1 list and AC4NJ (WC4E) in the Florida Contest Group #1 list should 
straighten things out.  The CW Scores on the following page identifies their 
teams correctly.  The actual team scores and corresponding ranking are 
published correctly and shouldn't need amendment (sorry Jim!).  I hope this 
clears things up a bit.

	Just a reminder that the next CW NAQP is 1800Z 5 August to 0600Z 6 
August and the next SSB NAQP is 1800Z 19 August to 0600Z 20 August.  Now's 
the time to get your teams together and E-Mail them to me at one of the 
addresses below.

I have used CT, NA, and TR Logging.  I do very little SSB contesting mostly
CW.  TR logging is head and shoulders above the rest for CW contesting or
operating CW on a DXpedition.  The features are big time.  If you want to
know about what it will do for a cw op just write.
