Announcing the New Year's Day 2002 Sprint

Please support the annual New Year's Day sprint sponsored by KI6FF. Open
to all participants. Need not be a member of Western States Weak Signal
Society to enter. Certificates will be issued to overall point leaders
and to band winners in each ARRL section. Time period is January 1, 2002
from 6AM to 12 Noon your local time. The sprint this year will include
all bands from 50 MHz. up. Exchange is call signs and grid squares, plus
bonus points available for collecting the station's valid WSWSS and SWOT
(SideWinders On Two) numbers. ARRL contest scoring, with the exception
that an additional one contact point for each valid WSWSS and/or SWOT
number received from the station worked. For instance, a contact on 2
meters will be worth one point for the contact, one point for collecting
a WSWSS number, and another point for collecting a SWOT number from the
station worked. For a total possible of 3 points for that contact.
Working the same station on 432 MHz. would generate 2 points for the
contact plus a possible 2 more points for collecting both a WSWSS and a
SWOT number for a possible 4 points per contact. Use your logging
programs by tricking them into logging the contact a second and third
time for the bonus points. Log a station once for the initial contact,
then log again with a -W after the call sign for getting his WSWSS
number, then log again with a  -S after the call sign for getting his
SWOT number. For example, work KI6FF and log once as KI6FF, again as
KI6FF-W for collecting the WSWSS number, and log again as KI6FF-S for
collecting the SWOT number. That will log as three contacts and the
software should keep track of the scoring correctly.
