If you don't plan to operate in the CW Sweepstakes this weekend, you 
can still have a lot of fun by getting on the air for an hour or two 
on Sunday and calling cq ss. It will only take a few minutes for one 
of the numerous "Unlimited" (assisted) Class operators to spot you on 
packet, and then you will be on the receiving end of a nice pileup. It 
will last for about an hour, because you will continue to appear on 
their bandmaps for about that length of time. The SO2R unassisted ops 
will also quickly find you, and you will persist on their bandmaps 

When the rate slows down, then you can drag out your wife's callsign 
or your club callsign and start it all over again!

For all you "Unlimited" or multi-op guys out there, please spot all of 
your S&P qso's on Sunday. It will make it more fun for everyone! K1TTT 
tells me there is plenty of bandwidth on the cluster network, and the 
DX'ers can set their filters so they are not bothered by all of the 
domestic spots.
