NCCC THURSDAY  NIGHT MADNESS continues this week, Nov. 24, local date in 
North America.

Northern California Contest Club invites contesters around the world 
(especially expeditioners) to use this  focused  opportunity to check out 
antennas, logging S/W, propagation, etc. , in preparation for the big event 
this coming weekend.  I suggest we use normal CQWW rules, EXCEPT one point 
allowed for Qs in same country, like WPX rules.  We want to encourage rate, 
as well as DX mults/points in this one-time practice event.  There is no 
real score reporting, so don't worry about your logging program scoring the 
1 pointers, just work 'em!

  --30 mins   0330-0400Z , Nov. 25
-- Start 0330Z (1930 PT, 2030 MT, 2130 CT 2230 ET, Nov. 24)

-- Normal CQWW CWrules, NO DUPES on same band

-- Suggested rally center freq:  1810, 3540, 7040, 14040, 21040, 28040

-- 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, Dec. 2,  0330-0400Z,  we'll practice on 160m, a warmup for the 
ARRL 160m contest.
