The fall contest season is almost upon us, and once again
I am looking for someone to help organize contest operators
here.  I would really like to find someone who can take 
charge of arranging for operators for multi-multi efforts
for the major contests (CQWW SSB and CW for this fall anyway).
This involves finding operators, getting commitments, making
sure there are enough operators to man all the open bands,
finding last minute replacements for cancellations, etc...
Use your call, my call, or a club call.  If you use my call
I handle the qsl's and send in the logs, otherwise its up
to you.

If you are interested in doing other contests that is also 
possible.  We have done multi-op's for the ARRL SS, 10m, 
and 160m tests in the past, but single operator's are welcome 
also.  And any of the other contests that don't conflict with 
other things are open also.  And of course if there is no 
operation in progress you can come and work dx, everything 
needs to be exercised and tested some more.

Already committed are:
