New Year's Day falls on a Sunday next year, so I think 
this conflict is scheduled to happen again. I think the 
BARTG RTTY Sprint is scheduled for the third Saturday 
of January, but the NAQP CW could be moved to the third 
SUNDAY. The NAQP is low power, so it shouldn't disturb 
Sunday afternoon TV sports, and it starts late enough 
that many people could even go to church before the 
contest starts. That would make: Jan7-8 RTTY Roundup, 
Jan14 NAQP SSB, Jan22 (SUN) NAQP CW. Anybody see any 
major problems with that?

By the way, the calendar I am looking at for 2006 is 
the CQ Amateur Radio Calendar, and January 20, 2006 is
