Denizens of the TopBand,
      The time grows near for the start of The Stew Perry TopBand DX 
Challenge. If you need a refresher regarding the rules, or want to be 
generally amused, then cruise to:


      The Boring Amateur Radio Club, which sponsors this great test of 
Operator, Ether, and Wire, is proud to note the Stalwarts among us who 
have ponied up $50.00 each to sponsor a category that they individually 
feel important to emphasize as part of the Contesting Struggle. 
Suggestions have been proffered for categories, but all plaques come 
from the Players, not from some unforeseen structure or force. So If you 
feel a certain area should be rewarded or recognized, simply let me know 
at my e-mail address below and promise to send me the $ to pay for the 
plaque. Simple as that!

    The Plaques that are offered for this years edition of The Stew 
Perry and the Stalwarts who are sponsoring them are:

      If you are struck with a brilliant category, and wish to sponsor 
it, there is still time! Simply let us know. The donor's call is also 
inscribed on the plaque along with the combatant who won the piece of 
art. Last year's plaques are finally finished and are safely locked up 
in a secret area on Mt. Domitrix, waiting for the opportunity to be 
mailed to the winners in various corners of the world where the 160M RF 
energy has fallen heavily.
      Add the radials, feed the cats, stretch the Beverage and get on 
for this year's edition of The Stew Perry TopBand DX Challenge!
     73 and I remain,
