The NAS CW Sprint is on Saturday .  .Join NCCC on Thursday night for a
vigorous, challenging half hour practice --  the 6th week of NS Ladder XXII.

PST:  1830-1900 Thurs (0230-0300Z Fri UTC)
Bands:  20, 40, 80 and 160. (xx.040+ or ~1812-1818)

Differences in rules from NAS CW:
-- Band mults
-- 1,1 KHz qsy  (rather than 1,5)
-- add 160m (optionally)
-- some added mults  .  HI, DC + more Carib countries than NAS.

Earlier weeks of the current ladder have had 40+ participants and max rates
~125/hr or more. . . the pileups and speed (and maybe dodging k1n callers)
will renew and sharpen your sprinting skills.

RE K1N:  if there's QRM from K1N callers move up in frequency (there are no
CW W1AW transmissions at that time).

Please post your scores, even embarrassing ones, to 3830scores.com

Probably there's an NCCC practice on Fri night as well.
