No, no, no!  All Amateurs, with or without kids of their own ARE kids
and can enter this contest.  

"Kids" is defined as:  Any person of any age operating under the
supervision of an appropriately licensed control operator of an amateur
station. [Note: This includes the control operator (him/her)self.]

Just send the contest exchange as would any station in the contest!

We need the participation by ALL hams!!

See U in the pileups!

Bill, N3RR

BN-4000 current balun so, I'm enclosing here the answer I've got
