NCCC THURSDAY (& FRIDAY)  NIGHT MADNESS continues this week, Nov. 17 AND 18 
local date.

  --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)

-- Normal ARRL SS rules, NO DUPES

-- Suggested rally center freq:  14250, 7225, 3830, 1850 (if MUF goes below 

-- 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,

Next week,  CQWW CW practice on Thursday, Nov. 24.  Contesters around the 
world (esp. expeditioners) might use this as a focused  opportunity to 
check out antennas, logging S/W, propagation, etc.   I suggest we use 
normal CQWW rules, EXCEPT one point allowed for Qs in same country, like 
WPX.  We want to encourage rate, as well as DX mults/points in this 
one-time practice event.  Give me your opinions on this.  These Thursday 
Practices are for YOU!  Final format will be posted on Nov. 22.
