NNY in CW Sweepstakes !!!!

Just wanted to let everyone on the reflector know that the Hickory Lake
Contest Club will be convening its ANNUAL SWEEPSTAKES MEETINGS this
year. In the past years, we were located in the WNY section. As of this
year, we will officially be in the NNY Section. There is a group of 6
who will be participating in the CW SS this weekend. We plan to operate
for the full 24 hours allowed by the rules, and hope to stay close to
the bottom end of the general class CW bands. I have not heard of any
other operations for the new NNY section, and we hope to give everyone
the chance to work us. 
 Will be using the Club call KB2UGM as of now, but if the Vanity Program
issues any of our choices, we may be K2NNY or W2NNY or WB2ITU. As of
now, look for KB2UGM and we will NOT be the big SPEED DEMONS that
everyone complains about.
 Hope to work you and hope EVERYONE gets a SWEEP !!!!		

73 and CYA on Saturday at 4:00 EST we will start on 40 Meters.

P.S. Set up those CT, NA, TR and other programs to accept NNY !!!!

I'm of the same opinion.  I've tried it both ways and find that both my
rhythm and the calling station's get jolted by "QSO B4".  That said, it's
less disruptive on SSB than CW.  I can go either way on SSB, but I prefer to
treat folks politely or be treated politely in those situations.

I think you are off-base on your comment about "whining" on this topic. The
operators who are discussing this disgusting activity are truly WORLD-CLASS.
They aren't whiners. I know W0UN and I know the operator who was running his
station in CQWW this year. These guys don't have to whine or whimper to get
people to realize how good they are. The guy running W0UN's station this
weekend is possibly the best operator in the world - bar none! Whining is not
his style. 

Whoever the station was that was violating both FCC and contest rules should be
dealt with. I am glad to see this pointed out on this reflector, and you should
be too.

Quit complaining, John.  I haven't heard a signal on 10 meters
since 1994. (Except for the truckers that use Kenwoods as they
go through Anchorage)  de KL7HF
