NCCC THURSDAY  NIGHT MADNESS continues this week,
  Dec. 22 local date in NA, Dec. 23Z

After six weeks of warmups for the major contests, I'm ready for some SO2R 
Sprint Rules!  How 'bout you?

  --30 mins   0330-04Z  (all NCCC practice sessions will be the same LOCAL 
time, year round, UFN)
-- Start 0330Z (1930 PT, 2030 MT, 2130 CT 2230 ET)

-- 100 watts, dupes allowed after 1 intervening Q on the same band 
(back-to-back on different bands are OK, 1 KHz QSY.
Otherwise it's like the NCJ NA CW Sprint
  (see http://www.ncjweb.com/sprintrules.php )

-- 14040, 7040, 3540, 1810.  If the MUF shuts down 20/40m, 160 can take up 
the slack.

-- Consider using slower speeds when CQing in the first 15 minutes.

-- Report scores near 3830 LSB after the practice,  at 0400Z (8 PM PST) on 
the weekly NCCC
contest net).  Real-time score collecting, bragging, excuses, antenna checks,
advice...or report score/comments on 3830 reflector

Next week,  NS rules again, on Dec. 29 in NA,  Dec. 30 Zulu

  Merry Christmas,  N6RO
