As the summer winds down there are a few contest that might be fun depending on conditions. This first one is not a contest but a celebration of Hiram Percy Maxims birth with the ARRL.  I saw a lot of activity already and it runs through next Saturday

 

Another Contest that Some of you might enjoy will be the CW sprint Next Saturday Night.  It is Just 4 hours 8 -12 PM Eastern.  Teams consist of 5 members each.  We have a lot of great CW ops, I would love for us to get a team together and throw down a big score.  Whos is in?  Let me know by FRIDAY 7 PM so I can register a team.
