The NAQP CW  and the RTTY Roundup contests are both 
scheduled for this coming Saturday. With a lot of the 
RTTY activity occuring around 7040, and the NAQP 
suggested frequencies of around 7030, 40 meters has all 
the potential of becoming a total zoo.

The only hope I can see is for cw guys to use the lower 
part of the band, down into the Extra Class portion, 
and for the RTTY guys to stay as high as possible, 
above 7080 for domestic QSO's, and above 7040 for DX.

It's a shame that these two great contests got 
scheduled for the same weekend. I would have loved to 
enter both, but the January NAQP CW has got to be the 
"funnest" contest of the year, so that's where I'll be.
