Could I suggest that contestors print and take this table of
propagation and callsigns to their local (non-contest) club
meeting this month and especially the first week of July,
to get all of these new HF hams on the air that weekend to
provide QSOs for the WRTC contestors:

  Have your signals heard in Slovenia, Europe, July 8-9, during WRTC!

Get on the air Sat-Sun July 8-9, and be a Good Neighbor, by making QSOs
in the World Radiosport Team Championship.  Fifty-three stations, all in
Slovenia, but operated by two-ham teams from around the world, will be
operating for 24 hours, and they will be looking for you on 80-10 meters
on CW and SSB, so please work them all!     Try these bands/times first:
 Sunrise in S5: 03:26UTC  Sunset 18:48UTC      G = Good  P = Possible

GMT       EDT             W1           W0           W5           W6
