NCCC's 40th Anniversary Special Event

The Northern California Contest Club is having a party and you're all invited! This year marks 40 years of excellence in amateur radio contesting for NCCC, and to share our excitement, we're having a special on-air celebration.  It's the NCCC 40th Anniversary Party -- a two week event taking place from September 18 to October 1, 2010, and open to all amateurs worldwide.

During this time period, which includes the NCCC-sponsored Sprints (www.ncccsprint.com<blocked::http://www.ncccsprint.com/>) and precedes the California QSO Party (www.cqp.org<blocked::http://www.cqp.org/>), NCCC members and club stations will be "on the air" -- ready to have a 40th Year QSO with you.  To facilitate easier identification during this event, NCCC member stations have been encouraged to add "/40" to their callsigns, during non-contest periods.  In addition there will be a few 1x1 special event callsigns assigned, which will also count as NCCC members stations.  A complete list of all eligible NCCC stations and callsigns can be found at: www.nccc.cc/40thcalls.html<blocked::http://www.nccc.cc/40thcalls.html>.

To further commemorate this event, NCCC is offering an attractive Certificate to anyone who works at least 40 NCCC member stations during this 40th Anniversary event.

Completed details of this event are available at http://www.nccc.cc/40th<blocked::http://www.nccc.cc/40th>

So please check the website, and mark your calendars now!

 Help us celebrate 40 Years of memories in this great hobby.  CU On The Air!
