Re: Valentine Sprint question revisited

Milton Garb <w6qe@...>

Hi Tom,
I'm thinking that it may not be as simple a question as presented.
But, I'm just another goes:
If you work folks before your official rolling start in the contest...and then you enter the contest,
during your allotted time, can work them again for your log?
NO...They're going to tell you that you're a dupe. Even though you weren't in the contest, they were, and you can only count 1 time in their log per band.
Every QSO with a station that you make prior to YOUR official start is a QSO with that station that you cannot make again on that band, once your time zone starts. You'll be shooting yourself in the foot by starting early.
See what I mean?
That's what catches my eye right off the bat.
Hope this helps.
I saw you on 20m a little while ago...very nice and clean signal...

OK, so that means that I could start making contacts at any time for
the purpose of giving contact points to Sprint participants. For
Conus that would be 8PM EST and 5PM PST.

But the contacts will not count on my totals until it is 8PM my local

Is that right?
