Following on the big success of last week's no same-band dupes test for NS
Ladder we're holding a second identical session this Thursday night,
0230-0300Z (Friday UTC). 20, 40 and 80m. CW on the following frequencies:

20 m      14030-14045 (avoid W1AW at 14047.5)
40 m      7030-7045 (avoid W1AW at 7047.5 and PSK at 7038)
80 m      3530-3545

Re WPX practice: NS is a great opportunity for WPX participants to check
their equipment under vigorous conditions. Familiarize yourself with the
NCCC Sprint rules at www.ncccsprint.com
and join us for 30 mins of fun, hectic contesting using a modified sprint
format. Then post scores to www.hornucopia.com  .

Same format as the usual ladder, see http://www.ncccsprint.com/ladder.htm
For this week only, no dupes are allowed on the same band.  All other rules
the same. See http://www.ncccsprint.com/rules.htm  .

Note: The scores for this week's NS will not be included in the NS Ladder
compilation.  The regular NS Ladder, with dupes allowed, resumes on June 5

Not up to the 30+ wpm speeds of the NS Ladder?  Mike, W9RE runs the "Slow
NS", SNS 30 minutes earlier (0200-0215Z) same frequencies as NS.
