      NAQCC Sprint Tuesday night!

      Our December sprint is this coming Tuesday evening local time (December 11, EST - 8:30-10:30PM, CST - 7:30-9:30PM, MST - 6:30-8:30PM, PST - 5:30-7:30PM), which translates as Wednesday December 12, 0130-0330Z in all cases.

      I will refer you to the proper URL:

      http://naqcc.info/sprint201212.html

      There you will find all the details as to time, frequencies and other important information.

      Certificates: SWA (simple wire antennas) certificates by call area, VE and DX for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers (New!). A Certificate for top score in the GAIN antenna category.

      Prizes: Too many to list!! - We're making a change in our prize drawing for the sprints. Here's a quote from the prizes page, under the main section, on the web site:
      "Beginning with the November 2012 sprint, a winner will be notified as soon as one is chosen. Then the first to reply gets the first choice of a prize. Before that we went by order of sprints. In other words, the June winner had to wait for the May winner to make his choice, etc. Now it's first response, first choice no matter what month. That way those who take forever to answer won't hold up those who are eager to get their prize. If someone doesn't reply at all by the end of the following month, there will be a re-drawing to choose a replacement winner for that sprint, and the one who didn't reply becomes ineligible for any future drawings. For example, the June winner has until the end of July to respond."

      This is a monthly event that caters to the CW veteran, the CW newcomer, straight key and bug fans. All are welcome to participate (this includes QRO); but you must use QRP power levels to compete for awards.

        If you've been hesitant to join in our sprints because you hear other sprints running at breakneck speeds, have no fear. Our sprints are geared to the newcomer to CW and/or contesting. Virtually everyone including the many veteran contesters who regularly enter our sprints will slow down to YOUR speed to help you make your contacts.

        NOTE: For this, our Ninth Anniversary sprint, we are repeating what we did for our 100th sprint in February. This time we have NINE extra special prizes which will be awarded to nine different participants in a random drawing. The drawing, as in February, will take place in a 'semi-live' web cast. That will be on Columbus Day, October 14 around 2300Z. The web cast can be accessed here (http://naqcc.info/prize_drawing_9th_anniv.html). Details of the prizes are being kept a secret until the web cast.

        The NAQCC Ninth Anniversary runs from 0000Z October 6 through 2400Z October 12, a full seven days as usual. We now have 40 operators to man our 10 calls (N1A through N0A). Special QSL cards and certificates are available for working the anniversary special event stations. A N#A spotter page will be available at (http://naqcc.info/spot_schedule.php) to see where and when the N#A stations will be operating. Full information about the NAQCC 9th anniversary celebration can be found at: http://naqcc.info/main_n3a.html
