Subject: [CQ-Contest] Internet Sprint reminder
> 16th INTERNET CW SPRINT CONTEST
> Contest period: 8 May 2004. 2200 UTC for two hours.
> Bands: 20 / 40 meters CW (this is a real radio contest, no internet).
> Suggested frequencies are 030-050.
> Max power output: 150 watts at transmitter output connector.
> Exchange: Consecutive QSO number (starting with one), name and state
> or province or DXCC country (if outside W/VE). The name for
> the first QSO is your name. For every QSO afterwards, the name
> you send is the name you received in the previous QSO.
> Call: CQ INT
> The standard sprint QSY rule must be followed. This means that if you
> solict a QSO (i.e., with CQ or QRZ), after completing the QSO, you must
> QSY at least 1 kHz before calling another station, or 5 kHz before
> solicting another QSO.
> Both callsigns must be sent during the exchange. Only one signal at a
> time please and all QSOs are to take place on CW. All information
> submitted must have been decoded during the contest. The use of post
> contest detection or verification techniques or systems is not allowed.
> Also, do not make round robin type QSOs. It will be very easy to spot
> these with the names floating around. A round robin QSO is one where
> you should QSY, but instead hang around to work the station who is
> QSOing the station you gave the frequency to.
> You may work the same station multiple times provided they are separated
> by at least 3 other QSOs in both logs (regardless of band). For example,
> if K2MM works K7RAT, K2MM must work at least 3 other stations before he
> can work K7RAT again. K7RAT must also work 3 stations before working K2MM
> again. Changing bands does not eliminate the three QSO requirement.
> The three QSOs must not be dupes themselves.
> You must not work the same station or stations using any kind of schedule
> or system. It is the intent of the dupe rule to make sure we don't run
> of stations to work. It is NOT the intent of this rule for you to change
> how you would operate the contest if dupes were not allowed. If, in the
> checkers opinion, you have not lived up to the intent of this rule, your
> log will be disqualified!!
> Total score is the number of contacts you make. Any QSO found to be
> defective will be removed from both logs. (Yes, if someone miscopies your
> exchange, you won't get credit for the QSO.)
> Any QSO that can't be verified with the other log will be removed. This
> means if you work someone who doesn't send in their log, you will not get
> credit for the QSO. It also means that if you work someone and don't send
> in your log, you won't have helped them at all, you'll have just wasted
> their time.
> Please refrain from using vulgar or inappropriate names. If you receive
> one of these names, feel free to either edit it or replace it with your
> starting name. Make sure to make a note in your log so we know what you
> did. Injecting the contest with an inappropriate name (in the log
> opinion) will result in a 1000 point penalty per occurrence. Examples of
> inappropriate names may be found on MTV and generally start with the
> letter "B". Also, only one person is allowed to use the name Monica.
> Logs must be sent in ASCII format via internet in the NCJ Sprint Cabrillo
> format to intspr at kkn.net. Please indicate the first name you used in
> the contest as a soapbox comment.
> Results will be publised on CQ-CONTEST within a few weeks of the contest.
> Logs are checked using the K2MM LogZap software system. All checked logs
> will be made available by FTP except for those requested by the submitter
> be kept private. Decisions of the judging committe are final and
> The log submission deadline is 48 hours after the contest is over.
> Good luck, tell a friend and HAVE FUN!!
