Announcing the NCCC's (Northern California Contest Club) weekly Thursday
night running of the SNS.
The Slow Speed NS practice is from 0200z to 0215z (Friday UTC, Thursday
local time). That's starting at 10:00pm EDT, 9:00pm CDT, 8:00pm MDT and
7:00pm PDT, local time Thursday.
Please keep your speed to 18 WPM or below. I have received some comments
that speeds seem to be creeping up and we don't want to scare anyone off.
20 m 14037-14043
40 m 7037-7043
80 m 3537-3543
In general spend 5 minutes on each band starting with 20.
DUPES: Dupes allowed after one intervening QSO.
POWER: 100 watt limit.
If you don't hear a CQ send a CQ and don't worry about the couplet since
this is only practice and hopefully an introduction to sprints for newbies.
I think stations might answer a CQ more likely than call CQ themselves.
With that said remember that newbies are listening get up the nerve to jump
in so don't hesitate to make Q's.
A special thanks to the high speed regulars who make the SNS go!
NS 0230z to 0300z this week regular NS Sprint Rules CW (except NO dupes
allowed) See N6ZFO's announcement.
