TopBanders, Contesters and Amateurs of Distinction,
      This is a short note to remind the faithful of the 7th running of 
the Stew Perry TopBand DX Challenge running 1500Z 28 Dec to 1500Z 29 
Dec. This gives you precious few hours to get those Beverages up and the 
SWR down. The full rules, which should be followed by all combatants, 
live on at the following web site:


      The Stalwarts who have seen the value of rewarding certain 
classifications of contesters have pledged $50.00 for the plaques listed 
below. If you feel that a category has been snubbed and wish to right 
the dreadful wrong, then notify me soon. Time is getting short!
