Obviously there is a lot of RTTY contest activity in AL.  NAQP RTTY is 
February 29-March 1.  I am sure ACG will have teams in that one.  WF4W 
will register SECC teams for that one.  Remember, you do not have to be 
within the club circle or even be a member of a club to be on a team. 
It seems to me that GA and Carolina RTTY ops could put together some 
very good RTTY teams to compete with ACG teams and nationally.  Please 
let WF4W know if you would like to be on a SECC team and whether you 
will be full time or part time and low power or QRP.

2.  Straight Key Night
K4BAI   19          19          6:21  GA

3.  QRPARCI Pet Rock Sprint
K4BAI   35  27  28,350  5W QRP  3.0  GA

4.  Adventure Radio Society January Spartan Sprint
K4BAI   30          30  Tubby   2.0  GA

Also, in Tuesday night's QRP Fox Hunt, I worked 63 stations + the two 
Foxes = 65.  Conditions weren't too good.  Pretty much worked all areas 
except W6/7 and VE.  No long skip noted.  Thanks to K4NM, K4PIC, N3TL, 
K4JPN, AB9CD, N4SAM et al for QSOs.  A full report has been posted to 
the qfox reflector.  If you are not subscribed to that and would like a 
copy of the full report, let me know and I'll send you one.

This Week's Contests:

1.  NCCC NAQP Practice Sessions.  0230-0259Z Friday and Saturday 
(Thursday and Friday local time).  Usual NAQP rules.  No dupes.  Low 
power.  10-160M CW.  Exchange:  Name + SPC.

2.  SNS slow speed NA Sprint Practice.  0200-0215Z Friday (Thursday 
local).  80-40M.  Max power:  100W.  Max speed:  22 WPM.  Exchange: 
both calls, #, name, SPC.  Dupes OK after band change or one intervening 

3.  Thursday night QRP Fox Hunt.  Two foxes will be QRV 0200-0330Z 
Friday between 7030 and 7050.  5W maximum.  Exchange:  RST, SPC, Name, 

4.  Michigan QRP Club January CW Contest.  160-6M CW.  12Z Sat to 2359Z 
Sun.  Exchange:  RST + SPC + MiQRP Club # or power output.

5.  North American QSO Party.  160-10M CW.  18Z Sat to 06Z Sun. 
Exchange:  Name + SPC for NA stations.  Only Name for non-NA stations. 
(My contest software wants something in the SPC space, so I put "DX" in 
there.  I usually delete the "DX" in the Cabrillo log before submission, 
but I doubt that is necessary.)  Maximium time for single ops:  10 
hours.  Maximum power:  100 watts.  Teams of two to five single ops may 
be registered.  ACG teams registered by WA1FCN; SECC by K4BAI.  For 
SECC, we have 8 stations so far and I'd like to have at least two more 
and, ideally, a lot more than that.  We have 8 for each mode (CW and 
SSB).  I will register the CW teams Friday, so please e-mail me ASAP if 
you can participate and would like to be on a SECC team. Again, you need 
not be inside the SECC circle or even be a SECC member.  Just let me 
know your call, name to be used, SPC and whether you expect to be full 
time or part time and whether you expect to run low power or QRP.  This 
is a fun contest with a lot of band changing possible since mults (NA 
SPCs) count per band.  There is always a lot of activity.  No QSY rule, 
so you can practice running or search and pounce or both.

6.  Straight Key Century Club Weekend Sprintathon (SKS).  00-24Z Sun. 
160-6M CW.  Exchange:  RST + Name + SPC + SKCC# or "none."  The sponsor 
requests "real" RST reports.  Extra points for QSOs with LW3EX.

Hope everyone has a good week and weekend and makes a lot of QSOs.


John, K4BAI.
