      It is nearly time for the serious 160M enthusiast to fire up the 
rig and join the throng for the 8th running of The Stew Perry TopBand DX 
Challenge sponsored by The Boring Amateur Radio Club. This CW only 
contest starts 1500Z Dec. 27 and ends 1500Z Dec. 28. You may operate 14 
hours out of the contest period. There are a few other simple rules such 
as what the exchange is, how your radio will disintegrate into a pile of 
pooh if you use the packetcluster and the strict dress code necessary to 
accept a winning plaque. These concise rules should be read aloud to the 
local constabulary if questioned about your activities during the 
contest time period. The rules may be found at:
