54th Annual Pa QSO Party runs 1600 Z Saturday through 0500 Z Sunday, picks
up 1300Z Sunday through 2200 Z Sunday.

Sure seems like everyone is elbowing the oldest state QSO Party out of it's
weekend, but we'll still be around.

Also don't forget the Makrothen RTTY Contest this weekend!  The contest is 
broken into three different 8 hour segments - 10/9 from 0000 - 0759 UTC and 
1600 - 2359 UTC.  On 10/10 it is from 0800 - 1559 UTC.  The timing of the 
second segment works great for the NA RTTY Sprint as it ends just at the 
start time for the Sprint.  After the Sprint you will 4 hours to rest up for

the last 8 hour segment of the Makrothen!  Can it get any better than this?
