January 1 being a Sunday, that shouldn't be a problem.  RTTY Roundup on
Sat Jan 7 (first Sat in Jan), NAQP CW on Sat Jan 14 (second Sat in

Am I wrong?

Nix on Sunday for NAQP.  I am not going to be too thrilled about a
contest that ends at 1:00 am Eastern time, getting home at 2:30 and
then having to get out of bed 4 hours later to go to work.  Saturday,
please, and then I can roll out of bed at 10:00 on Sunday :-)
