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.

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

(back-to-back on different bands are OK, 1 KHz QSY.
Otherwise it's like the NCJ NA CW Sprint (see
