Announcing the NCCC's (Northern California Contest Club) weekly Thursday
night running of the SNS.
The Slow Speed NS practice is from 0200z to 0215z (Friday UTC, Thursday local
time). That's starting at 10:00pm EDT, 9:00pm CDT, 8:00pm MDT and 7:00pm PDT,
local time Thursday.
20 m 14037-14043
40 m 7037-7043
80 m 3537-3543
In general spend 5 minutes on each band starting with 20.
DUPES: No same band dupes. You may work the same station on a different band
POWER: 100 watt limit.
If you don't hear a CQ send a CQ and don't worry about the couplet since this
is only practice and hopefully an introduction to sprints for newbies.
I think stations might answer a CQ more likely than call CQ themselves.
With that said remember that newbies are listening to get up the nerve to
jump in so don't hesitate to make Q's. Also since this is only a
practice you can go past the 15 minute time suggestion.
