      Event Announcement...

      It is nearly time again for the annual New Year's Eve Around the World
      QSO Party on Reflector 9200. This year brought to you for the first
      time with the crystal clear quality of IRLP HD audio (UNCOMP).

      [There is no need to change anything on your node to run UNCOMP. All
      stations that connect to 9200 are automatically running UNCOMP already]

      Follow the celebrations around the world for 24 hours beginning at
      1030 UTC on Wednesday January 31 (just before New Zealand at 1100
      UTC), continuing until 1030 UTC on January 1 (just after Hawaii at
      1000 UTC).

      With one short exception (below) this is not a net. You will have to
      connect and make your own contacts. There will be no net control
      station.

      The exception is at roughly 0300 UTC, (2200 EST in North America) Ron
      McKay VA7MWR will take over the channel briefly to conduct the drawing
      to determine the winners of two Alinco DR-135T radios to be given away
      by the Friday Night Net. After the drawing the channel will be
      returned to the QSO Party, as the celebrations continue across North
      America, with Newfoundland at 0330 UTC.

      TO ENTER for your chance at one of these radios, you must check in to
      any session of the Friday Night Net on Refector 9205 between now and
      then. This net is held on 9205 every Friday night (including tonight)
      at 0100 UTC (2000 EST). You can only enter during one of the Friday
      Night Net sessions. You cannot enter on New Years Eve, but you must be
      present on New Years Eve during the drawing to win. If you are called
      and do not respond, the drawing will continue until a winner is
      determined. There is no cost or obligation to enter, simply check in
      during a Friday night session. The raffle is sponsored by AlincoUSA,
      Ron McKay and the Friday Night Net. More details available on the net.
