Obviously some reporters included a multiplier factor in their
multiplier number and others did not.  I usually try to reduce the
multipliers to the actual number, but wasn't familiar enough with the
rules to do that for this contest.  Please try to report to 3830 your
actual multplier, not the number you get credit for after adding in a
band multiplier so that the numbers can be more easily compared.  Thanks.

Dahlonega, GA.

AB9CA and N4SAM in AL were also QRV, but I don't have their scores.

This week's contests:

1.  Thursday (40M) and Tuesday (80M) QRP Fox Hunts.  0200-0330Z Fri and
Wed.  7030-7050 and 3550-3570 kHz.  5W maximum power.  Work only the two
foxes.  For this Thursday, they will be K9JWV, Jim in UT and AB9CA, Dave
in AL.  For next Tuesday, the schedule shows AB7R in WA and N0IT in MO.
  Exchange:  RST, SPC, Name, Power.

2.  SNS and NS Ladder Thursday night events.  Slow speed SNS 0200-0215Z.
  Regular 0230-0259Z (Fri).  Slow speed is maximum 18 WPM and only 20,
40, and 80.  Regular also includes 160.  Maximum power for either is
100W.  Exchange:  both calls, #, name, and SPC.  One kHz QSY rule.  The
real NCJ North American Sprint is coming up early in February and these
Thurs night events are good practice.

3.  CQ 160 Meter CW Contest.  Sat 22Z to Sun 22Z.  160M CW.  30 hours 
maximum for single ops.  40 hours maximum for multi ops.  Exchange: RST 
and state or province or CQ Zone.  CQ Zones are part of the exchange 
only, not multipliers.  W8JI, K1TO, K4TD, VE7ZO, and K4BAI will be doing 
this multi op at the W8JI station.  I assume we will sign either W8JI or 
W4AN.  Hope to work you all during the weekend.  Even if you have 
limited time, get on when you can.  I assume our QRT time will be 
approximately 10 AM to 2 PM each day.  Otherwise, you will probably find 
us calling CQ for the other 40 hours.

4.  REF (French) CW Contest.  06Z Sat to 18Z Sun.  80-10M CW.  28 hours 
maximum for single ops.  Exchange:  RST + serial # or French Dept # or 
prefix for overseas French entities.

5.  UBA (Belgium) DX Contest, SSB.  13Z Sat to 13Z Sun.  80-10M SSB. 
Exchange:  RS + serial # or Belgian Province abbreviation.

6.  Adventure Radio Society February Spartan Sprint.  02-04Z Tuesday 
(Monday night local).  80-10M CW.  5W maximum.  Exchange:  RST + SPC + 
Power out.

Hope everyone has a nice week and weekend and a lot of QSOs, especially 
on 160M.  There was a QRP Sprint on 160 last night and conditions seemed 
very good even with my compromise antenna.  A lot of DX around too.

73, John, K4BAI.
