It's on to Wk 10 of NS Ladder this Thursday.  No doubt a light week because many NSr's will be in Dayton . .but . . a great week to get into NS Ladder if you havn't participated yet. 0230-0300Z Friday on 20, 40, 80 and 160 cw; see www.ncccsprint.com for details, and remember,  there's now a Newcomers Division for stations new to NS Ladder in 2007, with the winner having the highest cumulative score from Wk 9 to the end.

Let's continue to spread out in frequency, and as always please report scores, no matter how meager, on the 3830 score report page, at http://www.hornucopia.com/3830score/ .  As always, we thank Bruce and Dink for providing this important service.  

And above all, remember to just enjoy this exciting half hour of contesting.

SNS -- show up half an hour early for a slower NS Ladder practice, organized by Mike, W9RE around 14040 and 7040.  

And remember to read the entertaining and informative NS Ladder blog of KA3DRR at http://ka3drr.blogspot.com/  and the so-far quiescent n6zfo "ultimate radiosport" blog at http://nsladder.blogspot.com  .

NS Ladder Wk 8, May 11 was a huge success:

 -- Mike, W9RE established a new high score of 2574, displacing Howie N4AF the former all-time high score champion at 2400 pts.  The K6VVA NS Ladder X-prize remains unclaimed (3000 pts).  Mike's score was a 66X39 Mult accomplishment, vs 60x40 for Howie's previous record.  In the W. of Ms. River division, W0BH continued his perfect appearance record and a new high score of 1551 to remain division leader.   And in the NCCC division, 

 -- John, K4BAI, zoomed out a quiet year with a stunning 2233 pts (57x39), more than doubling his previous NSL IV high score of 1036.  

-- Many participants set new personal records, notably Paul K3STX, who passed the magic 1000 point mark for the first time.   In all but one NSL IV week Paul has increased his score over the previous outing, showing the value of the events for upping one's skill level.  Other high scores, K7SS, N5DX and others.
