There will be RTTY on the bands (10m to 80m) this Saturday as
operators exchange a Name and State (or Province or Country).
Party-time is Saturday 1800 UTC to Sunday 0600 UTC.
Single-ops operate 10 of the 12 hours, so you'll have time for a
meal and a break on Saturday, and still have Sunday free for your
other weekend activities. Multi-ops can operate all 12 hours.
Find the Rules, Team Registration, Past Results and Records at the
National Contest Journal website: <http://ncjweb.com/> http://ncjweb.com/
Any group of friends can form a NAQP Team of two to five
single-operators. Register your Team before the contest at the
