As usual I will be doing the scores for this weekends CQWW RTTY contest. I 
do have a few guidelines that I would like for you to follow when sending
your scores to me. This will be the format I will be using:

CLASS           HRS      SCORE     QSO'S     PTS    QTH      DX    Zones 

Single/Op Low Power
K4ZAM            45     450,000     566    12033     10      100    49

BTW I did make this one up and are just numbers Hi Hi

You can send me just that one line of info or the summary sheet from 
WF1B. Now here a list of things that also will help with getting 
your score properly posted.

1. NO ATTACHEMENTS !!! If you attach a score of a file it will not be posted.
   Does not take that long to type one line.

2. These scores are NOT official and do NOT send me any logs. It has been 
   suggested that I might post where to send the logs. Here are my two reasons
   for not doing that:
     A: I feel if someone competes in a contest they should be able to find
        out where to send the logs. With Internet I am sure someone can help
     B: I would hate to give out the WRONG info and have someone send a log
        wrong and get DQ'ed. I do not want to get blamed for anything like

3. In the subject line make sure you put your call and the contest name. I 
   am doing several contests and do not want to get your score mixed up with
   I have filters setup in my mailing program that sends the scores to the
   proper mailbox.

4. Make SURE you put your class on your posting. Do not assume I know you 
   operated anything for the last twenty years. If I receive a posting with
   only single op on it, you will go into the Unlimited Class. 

5. If you send me a correction please include the mistaken score also and 
   the class you operated in. If you only send me your call and correction 
   I have to look through the entire sheet to find you. 

6. If you have a story to tell that is fine also, but I do not have time to
   read all of your story just for a score. Please put your scores at the
   top of your story.

   3830 reflector or email them direct to me. 

8. Bottom line is before you send in the score, STOP, READ IT, and see if 
   you can figure out how to post it. If it does not make sense to you I am 
   sure I will have a problem. This saves us both a lot of time in sending

I will be doing band breakdowns also, but all you need to do is submit the 
WF1B summary sheet or any summary sheet from any contest program. 

As some have noticed, there is no more WA4ZXA, I am now K4ZAM. I cannot wait
to hear what Eddie comes up with those letters Hi Hi. So please look for the
new call but will be the same guy.

As you may know, JOTA 1997 will mark the passage of the 40th Jamboree On
The Air. This year, JOTA will take place on the weekend of October 17,
18 and 19. The "ARRL Scout Handbook," has lots of details on JOTA, and
the Radio merit badge. It's available on the ARRLWeb at this URL:

For an ARRL "JOTA Package" containing the ARRL Scout Handbook plus 9
brochures (7 for Boy/Cub Scouts and 2 for Girl Scouts) please send an
8.5-inch by 11-inch self-addressed, self-stamped envelope (SASE), with
$1.25 (US) postage on it (add $0.23 for every 5 additional brochures),
to: ARRL - EAD, 225 Main Street, Newington, CT 06111, Attn: Scout. 

Be sure to specify how many of each brochure (Boy Scout or Girl Scout)
you'll require. (  An order form for EAD "Exhibit Kit" brochures appears
on the ARRLWeb at this URL: http://www.arrl.org/ead/#exhibit  )

For your planned events, we have brochures that serve to introduce
scouts to Amateur Radio: Our "E6" brochure, "Scouts On-The-Air," serves
to introduce Boy Scouts (and Cubs) to Amateur Radio and our "E8"
brochure "HAM RADIO: A Fun Challenge for Girl Scouts," is for Girl
Scouts. I'd also recommend some of our "So, You Want to be a Ham?"
brochures, which answer common questions folks have about getting
started in Amateur Radio.

Other JOTA resources:
Postcard-size certificates are free to anyone participating in any way.
Order beforehand for presentation during JOTA, or award later at Scout 
meetings. Send a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) large enough 
to hold the number of cards ordered to:

Jamboree-on-the-Air Certificate Cards
S221, 1325 West Walnut Hill Lane
PO Box 152079
Irving TX 75015-2079

JOTA Pocket patches: are $3.00 each; order early. (Price subject to
1) Include your local state sales tax (if any).
2) Be sure to specify which year's patches you're requesting
patches for (i.e. "JOTA 1997"). Send to:

JOTA Coordinator, International Division
Boy Scouts of America
S221, 1325 West Walnut Hill Lane
PO Box 152079
Irving TX 75015-2079
tel: (972) 580-2000.

Enjoy JOTA '97!
