Entries - Send log data showing date, time(z), band, exchange received and
claimed score. Be sure to also include your call and 070 Club member number
in your entry. Please send your entry as a .txt file via email (best way) to
N3DQU@aol.com or via post to:

Jay Budzowski
109 S. Northview Ave
New Castle, PA 16102-1633 USA

All entries must be received by July 1, 2002. A listing of logs received and
claimed scores will be posted on the 070 Club website as they are received.
All entries are subject to verification.

Power - Please keep your power output set to a reasonable level to avoid
QRMing the other guys.

Bonus Stations - You can work each Bonus Station once per band but please do
not ask them to QSY to another band for you. Bonus stations will try to work
as many bands as their equipment and propagation allows to give everyone a
chance for extra points but remember that they are in the contest too. No
guarantee that all Bonus Stations will be active on all bands.

Brag files - Calling "CQ 070" means you are in a contest mode, so no need to
send those brag files. If you want to operate in ragchew mode, send out a
general CQ instead.

Macros - Take advantage of your macro keys. Set up one with your exchange.

Alpha List - A good way to keep track of who you’ve worked. A dupe sheet will
be available from the website. For computer logging check out W3KM's Gen Log

Fun - That’s the whole idea!
