Bill Sheehan

Just a quick reminder that the PSK DeathMatch begins Saturday Dec 13,
2008 at 0000z and runs until 2359z Dec 14, 2008.

Valid modes are both PSK-31 & PSK-63.

Exchange is simple, Name and State/Province/Country.

Multipliers are US States, Canadian Provinces and DXCC countries
per band.
Valid bands are 6m-160m. (Not including WARC)

Good luck to all and I hope to see you there.

I'll try a copy and paste of the rules, but it is rather graphic
intensive and may not copy so well.......
