To all FT4 ops:

This is a reminder that once again, the Northern California Contest Club is
pleased to present a new weekly half hour FT4 Sprint, aka the FT4 NS, this
Thursday evening North America time.  Non-North American Stations  are
welcome in this contest as well.

The start time of the FT4 NS is always Fridays at 0100Z, regardless of
whether we?re on Standard Time or DaylightSavings Time.

Since everyone is new to the FT4 Sprint, we are starting out with no QSY
rules and no Dupe rule, i.e. QSYing after a QSO is not required and
duplicate contacts are not permitted.  Those rules may change, but for our
first running on
this week

After the contest,please remember to submit your score to www.3830scores.com.
The name of this contest is "NCCC FT4 Sprint".  Reporting your score,
whether it be big or small, helps build enthusiasm for this event.That in
turn increases participation for future editions, which benefits all of us.

For those of you using the popular N1MM+ logger, one can use any contest
module that uses 1 pt per QSO and Grid squares as multipliers.  If using
just WSJT-X, you can use the NA VHF selection.

Also, keep in mind that this contest covers 7 bands, and features mults per
band.  If you got someone nearby, it could be 7 fast, easy mults!
