I'm thinking September timeframe.
Thoughts, comments please.
September sounds great, thanks Binrat
here's hoping the bands improve. they have not been very good lately.
Sure, I'm pretty well open.
I was thinking of the magic 4 (80,40,20,10) with multipliers for 10.
All bands, WARC not included, full legal limit for output power
10X multiplier for earning a SO card during the contest?
Hmm, 100x multiplier for less than 10 watts then.
Just joking. I have to get the rules up shortly but they are home on my laptop and I'm at work.
Sounds good binrat thanks
September sounds good to me.
September works for me.

Maybe i will take my reading glasses off then pretend I am pegging the 200 watt scale instead of the 2000 watt scale.
But if I do not use my reading glasses I will not be able to read what contacts I log
200 watts on 40 and 80 meters?
May the propagation be with you.
Maybe Walmart will have a sale on propogation, or better yet buy it now on ebay free shipping from China.
Is it time?? I think it just maybe time for another contest.
