Wed, 13 Sep 2000 15:50:23 +0100
There's another contest worth mentioning -- our Tennessee neighbors are
hosting their QSO party this weekend. The time is 1800Z Sunday to 0100Z
Monday. Exchange is RST and State. Phone and CW. Bonus points for each
QSO with K4TCG.
CW: up 40 khz from band edge, and 1815
Phone: 1855, 3900, 7240, 14280, 21390 and 28390
The Tennessee Contest Group is a very active bunch and has given great
support to the Georgia QSO Party. Let's reciprocate and give 'em some QSOs
