Hi contesters:

Anyone interested in a contest this weekend (since we haven't had enough,
yet, this year?), take a look at the CH CW/SSB CONTEST.  Starts 0000Z May
1 (Friday night) and ends 2400Z May 2 (Sunday night).

Expect to have 5 or 6 mobiles active during most of the contest in ME,
NH, MN, SD, GA, SC, TX, NJ-DE-MD-VA (if W1NN isn't struck by business
commitments), TX, ID - and others mobiles where and when you find 'em. 
Plus a bunch of fixed stations.

Many mobiles will be capable of 40, 20, 15, and 10 meter operation; and
QSY on request (demand?)

Simple exchange:  RST, County, State; USA (incl AK and HI) mobiles worth
15 points each; everyone else in North America is fixed (1 point), and DX
is worth 5 points.  But 3,076 possible multipliers!

I'll be glad to provide info to anyone interested - I'll be leaving home
Friday afternoon shortly before contest time (7 PM CST).  email me at: 
w3dya at juno.com or w3dya at prodigy.com or chcontest at qth.net so everyone
subscribed will get your message!

Then watch for TX QSO Party (without the Armadillo county) on April 22
and 23!

73, Norm, W3DYA
