We would like to invite you to join us in the CW leg of the next North
American Sprint, 0000-0359 UTC on Sun, Sept 8. (Sat Sept 7, local time)
The novel format of having to QSY frequently takes some getting used to,
but it's a lot of fun once you get the hang of it.
The NA Sprint is sponsored by the National Contest Journal magazine, and
complete rules can be found at this link:
There are a number of resources available to help new sprinters get used
to the format and improve their skills. For example, the Sprint Survival
Web Page by N6TR provides some very useful tips and guidance on
operating in the Sprint. K5TR has compiled some audio files of Sprint
operating. W6SX presented a webinar about the Sprint entitled “How to
Have Fun!,” and many other strategy and tip pages have been compiled by
individuals and contest clubs. Check out the links below.
Once again, we hope you can join us, and we look forward to seeing your
call sign in the list of scores soon!
