Hi guys and gals,

Count me in, but starting late. Maybe very late. The XYL, not knowing
about the Sprint, invited some folks over for a BBQ.

Hey Charlie,

At 7:30 suggest that everybody go for a swim.

At about 8:00 tell them you have a cramp in your side and you're goin in
the house to lay down. While they're out there actin like a bunch of fish,
you can be inside enjoying the Sprint :-)

I didn't know you guys in AL drank anything that didn't have alcohol in it.


I 'll type real slow,and use big letters for Bernie!

Good idea Ed, I listen at the same speed I talk, that's why I don't do
anything but digital, I talk so slow my VOX won't stay keyed :-)

GM All-

I must have the "magic" touch . . . this morning after one 40 meter QSO
the power supply to the ts440 at K3VOA went belly up! I have to go look
for another now as this also runs a packet station here as well.

I expect to fire up the home qth rig for tonight's sprint . . . as long as
I don't burnup that one too (hi hi) Always Something!

Hi folks,

I stole the following from Contesting.com - enjoy!

Chas, K8IJ
=========================================================
CONTESTIATA (adapted by K3FT - 22 May 2002)

"Go placidly amid the QRN and the QRM, and remember what peace there may be
in S&P'ing. As far as possible, without surrendering your frequency, be on
good terms with all stations. Speak/send your exchange clearly, and listen
carefully to the response, even to the casual and non-contester types for
they, too, have point value!. Avoid loud and aggressive stations, they are
not worth the cost in rate to fight them. If you compare your Q-total
mid-contest with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there
will be greater and lesser-reported Q-totals than yours. Enjoy your
achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own station,
however humble; it is a real possession in helping the Club aggregate score.
Exercise caution in playing with new software BEFORE the contest for
untested software is full of trickery. But let not this blind you to what
virtue there is in new software; many stations have used new software; and
everywhere there are useful upgrades. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign
pleasure over a new multiplier. Neither be cynical about propagation; for in
the face of all plans; propagation is as predictable as the wind. Take
kindly the counsel of the contest sponsors, gracefully surrendering to their
requirements for log submittals. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in
sudden attacks of Murphy. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness of being on a band and calling
constant CQ's without answers. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with
yourself. You are a contester and licensed operator; no less than the others
who don't contest on the bands; you have a right to be there. And whether or
not it is clear to you, no doubt the fortunes of contesting will change, as
they should. Therefore be at peace with Murphy, whatever you conceive him to
be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the QRM and confusion of
the contest, keep an accurate and honest log. With all its QRM, QRN, and
visits by Murphy, it is still fun. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy. Remember
the cry 'WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR!!"
=========================================================

Great idea for the Sprint, I like 40M a lot, local time idea makes perfect sense, and I guess I'll have to run the guests out early.

I'd like to take a little poll.

How many are planning on playing in the 40 meter sprint.

All you need to do is reply to this email and type yes or no, or add any
comments you would like.

I'm just trying to find out how everyone feels about it.

Thanks & 73,

Looking forward to the 40M sprint tonight. Great idea,and the format
really is a fair way to get everyone involved.
So what if it a spur of the moment idea--that's why I bought the
FT817,and made up a portable kit--to get on the air whenever,and where ever.
I 'll type real slow,and use big letters for Bernie!

Jay, do we use normal local time or summer time?

I guess it is Summer Time, which is UTC+3 (instead
of the UTC+2 normal) for me, so I shall start the
contest at 1700 UTC.

Re: 40m Sprint question

Dick Thompson <wb0dul@...>
 

No. Mainly because of the short notice, Bernie. It's a great idea, but with my wife off work this weekend I don't want to tell her I can't go somewhere because I'm in a PSK contest. Maybe in the late summer or early Fall?

You decide, and whatever the majority wants is fine with me.
