Greetings TopBand Contesting Enthusiasts,
     The 4th Running of the Stew Perry TopBand DX Challenge will occur
this weekend. Everyone and their proverbial code-capable dog will be on
the air, flogging the ether, competing on one of the toughest,
unpredictable bands in a fun contest. The rules have been promulgated,
printed, reflectorized, pasteurized and are out there.
     Several TopBand Stalwarts have stepped up to sponsor Plaques for
Certain Categories that are important. The following is a list of these
plaques that have been sponsored.

    You, too, can sponsor a plaque for whatever category you feel is
important. Suggestions involving obscenity or categories in questionable
taste are subject to approval by the Sub-Committee on Smut of The Boring
Amateur Radio Club. All decisions are capricious, final and are not
influenced by small donations to the Club.
    The above Sponsoring stalwarts simply e-mailed me their category and
followed up with $50.00 via check or VISA and they have become
immortalized as TopBand Supporters. These Plaques are way cool..just ask
any of the past few years' winners.
    Remember to get on the air this weekend, take a break from all the
Holiday QRM and clear your senses with some competition in the Stew Perry
TopBand DX Challenge, brought to a 160M frequency you can find, by The
Boring Amateur Radio Club.
   73 and I remain,
    Chief Plaque-Meister

ps. If this Posting, The TopBand, or Contesting offends you.....Then there
must be something really wrong with you....
