BITS & PIECES -

8th ANNIVERSARY OF NAQCC - This coming week of October 7 through the 13th is a very special one for the North American QRP CW Club (NAQCC). That week we celebrate the 8th anniversary of the founding of the club by Tom KB3LFC (now WY3H) - President, and John K3WWP - Vice-President. We will have 10 special event stations on the air that week - one from each USA call area - with the calls N1A, N2A, N3A, N4A, N5A, N6A, N7A, N8A, N9A, N0A. The 40 operators of the calls will post their operating schedule at http://naqcc.info/n3a_complete_schedule.phpso you will know when and where to look for them as you participate in our celebration.

We are offering special QSL cards and Certificates for anyone who works one or more of our special event stations. To find out how you may obtain one and/or the other, check the information contained on the page at http://naqcc.info/main_n3a.html. You must follow the information there EXACTLY or your request may not be fulfilled.

The operation commences at 0000Z October 7 and continues through 2359Z October 13. That is the week of our monthly sprint with which many of you reading this may already be familiar. However this month's sprint is something special as all 10 of our special event calls will be active for the full two hours. There may be some sort of award or prize to the one working the most different calls. This should make our already extremely popular sprints even more popular than usual when we normally get 175-200 participants, of whom 110-130 or so will submit logs.

The sprint is Tuesday evening October 9 at 8:30-10:30 PM EDT which converts to the more familiar Wednesday October 10 from 0030-0230Z. Hope to see you there as well as at other times during anniversary week.

*CY0 NEWS RELEASE - 2 October 2012* Ron, AA4VK and Murray, WA4DAN have announced a two week delay in the start of the CY0 DXpedition. The new dates are October 22 - 31. Unfortunately, circumstances beyond our control prevented us from being able to fly to Sable Island on October 8, our original schedule. The revised schedule, however, will put us on Sable Island during the CQWW Phone contest weekend and even though we do not plan to compete in the contest, we do plan to provide a new country, Sable Island, to those in the contest. As previously advertised, focus will be on the 10, 12, and 15 meter bands where the most demand for CY0 exists. WA4DAN/CY0 and AA4VK/CY0 [NG3K
