The North American QSO Party is on 16 JAN so please join in during this Tuesday's Phone Fray for a practice session.  9:30 pm EST Tuesday (0230-0300z Wednesday).  

The rules are identical...exchange name and S/P/C; mults per band; 100w max.  Use the NAQP SSB module in your favorite logging software.  No logs to submit, just report scores to http://www.3830scores.com/.

The Phone Fray was designed to be a great practice opportunity for new contesters and veterans alike.  It's only 30 minutes long so time management, band changes, and run vs. S and P strategy are paramount.  Please forward this note to your club and help new contesters build some skills.

The rules are here:  http://www.perluma.com/Phone_Fray_Contest_Rules.pdf

Suggested center frequencies are:  21.325, 14.250, 7.175, 3.800 (try to avoid 3.790-3.800, and lower in the band is better), 1.875.  Start as high as possible and work your way down in frequency.  160 is hopping at the end.

Thanks!, 73, Dean, NW2K
