FYI folks. The Northern California Contest Club-sponsored Sprint is back on 
and will be running for its 26th session, or ladder. This one will be a 
short seven week series in January and February of this new year. This is a 
very spirited and fairly high-speed celebration for all who love CW and the 
"unique" sprint QSY rule, which requires that the "CQing station" leave the 
frequency after his/her QSO. This it's a test of agility and tuning, rather 
than simply setting on a frequency and "running" stations. The North 
American Sprint is coming up soon, and the NSL is a  wonderful test and 
practice for both our gear and the operator!

See you in both, and Happy New Year!
