A nice turn out with good radio conditions.  I'm sure there a few that 
haven't reported scores yet.  Interesting that we had two families of 
brothers participating this time (AA4LR and NJ8J) (K4BK and K4OD). 
Also, welcome to KE4KWE for his first score contribution to the club not 
on his customary mode of RTTY.

I also made QSOs in the NCCC CQ WPX Practice session on Thursday night 
and in the QRPARCI Hoot Owl Sprint Sunday night, but didn't bring the 
claimed scores in to the office today.

This weekend brings a number of contests that should be low pressure and 
fun.  Thursday night local is the usual NCCC NA Sprint Practice Ladder 
30 minute run from 0230 to 0300Z on CW with the usual NA Sprint rules 
but you can work duplicates if each has at least one intervening QSO 
with another session.  The QSY rule is also relaxed to one khz move.

The annual SEANet Contest runs on all modes 12Z Sat to 12Z Sun. 
Exchange is RS(T) and #.  You can only work SEANet area stations for 
points.  They are generally SouthEast Asia plus Japan, Korea, Australia 
and the south Pacific, Philippines, Guam, Indonesia, etc.

RSGB and Region One of IARU have their annual CW Field Day contests 15Z 
Sat to 15Z Sun.  Exchange RST + #.  Just answer anybody with a /P from 
Europe and give them some points.

The QRPTAC Sprint is Saturday afternoon, 18 to 2359Z.  CW only. Exchange 
RST, Name, State, and Telephone Area Code.  Bonus points for working 
N3EPA.  Sample log sheet available on website.

Monday night local (Tuesday 01 to 03Z) will be the June Spartan Sprint 
CW.  RST + SPC + power.  I just got via e-mail a nice award for second 
place tubby special call for the tenth anniversary contest in May.

Hope to see many of you at the Atlanta hamfest Saturday and especially 
the SECC meeting in the bleachers at 11 AM, if I actually get there. 
Also hope you all have fun and many QSOs on the air this weekend.  If 
you haven't been on lately, you have missed some really good conditions.

I worked my first Korea station (DS5USH) on 17 meters last night on the 
first call.  It was a special thrill since I was HL9KQ in Korea in 
1968-69.  Only later did I discover that I had worked Nam and three 
others on 17 meters using my zepp antenna with the antenna tuner tuned 
for 40 meters!


John, K4BAI.
