  Nov. 3 & 4 local date,  with an ARRL Sweepstakes CW warmup.
  CQ with 'SSP'  (SS Practice).

NORMAL SS rules, any entry/power class you choose.
Last week we had unusual rules, allowing dupes on other bands.
This just confused many folks, so NO DUPES this week.

-- 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)

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

This is a good opportunity to check out your antennas,
  station setup, RFI, logging S/W, band condx, SO2R practice, etc.
The long exchange in SS is an accuracy challenge, especially for us old farts.
  So, let's practice, practice, practice!

-- 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 (no automated entry 
setup for this)
