A comment from W9RE prompted me to clarify the dupe rule for NS.  It has 
not been stated previously, but back-to-back QSOs on different bands are 
permitted (and encouraged).  One of the ancestors of NS was the Internet 
Sprint, where intervening dupes on the same band and back-to-back on 
different bands are ok.  Since a prime goal of NS is to promote practice in 
SO2R mode, feel free to work those "cuplet" QSOs, they are a kick when they 
happen!  I had one with K4BAI two weeks ago, and with W9RE last 
week.  (Mike, your QSO total should be 56!)

NS continues this week, Oct. 20, local date.

-- 30 mins   0230-03Z
-- Start 0230Z (1930 PDT, 2030 MDT, 2130 CDT 2230 EDT)

-- 14040, 7040, 3540, 1810 (160 may become useful as 20m goes away)

-- 100 watts, dupes allowed after 1 intervening Q  on the same band 
(back-to-back on different bands are OK, 1 KHz QSY.

Otherwise it's like the NCJ NA CW Sprint (see
http://www.ncjweb.com/sprintrules.php )

-- Report scores to http://www.hornucopia.com/3830score/,  or on 3830 after
the practice.

Finally, remember 3830 at 0300Z for the weekly NCCC
contest net.  Real-time score collecting, bragging, excuses, antenna checks,

THURSDAY NIGHT MADNESS continues on  Oct. 27,
Nov 3 and 4, when we switch to SS CW format.  NS rules again on Nov 10.
