For weekly practice, try the NCCC Sprint (NS) in Thursday nights.   Eric NO3M has written some excellent tips on running two parallel QSO's here, look at the bottom of the 'Advanced Strategy SO2R' section:


While CQWW has a simple exchange of '5NN Zone', NS has 5 elements to the exchange, including a variable serial number.   And best of all, you don't have to be in a DX location to generate the rates - everyone's QSO is equally in demand.

NS only lasts 0.5 hours not 48, but that's still plenty of time to scramble your brain :-)
