40M FIRECRACKER SPRINT - Starts Tomorrow

stan W9SMR

The 070 Club 40M Firecracker Sprint Contest begins tomorrow!

The 24 hour window -

Opens at:  2000 UTC (1600 EDT) on Saturday July 6th

Closes at: 2000 UTC (1600 EDT) Sunday July 7th. 

You choose your best 6 hour block when submitting your entry.  Logs due 1 week after contest closes. Open to all licensed amateurs. 

You can use this Contest to increase your LONP totals and work on tough Endorsements like WALC-NA*. Our members on the West Coast are struggling for contacts, partly because those operators on the East coast and the Mid-West are hitting the sack before conditions are favorable to the West coast. An idea has been offered where operators on the West Coast will periodically check the activity they see and post that info to the Reflector. Enter your own call or other’s in PSKReporter to see activity. Pick your starting time to optimize short, medium and long distance contacts.

As conditions improve, your chances of making these contacts will soar!! Pull out the coffee pot and enjoy the chase!!

4 categories – High, Medium, Low, and QRP power. 

Exchange: Callsign, Signal Report, State/Province/Country (SPC).

Call:  “CQ 40m Sprint”

Good luck to all and hope to see you on the waterfall!
