Logging: After deciding to use " Your first call" in place of name, we discovered that this change can cause both WL and TR Log to balk. Ed, W0YK, has the fixes for WL and TR Log on the NS web page at Do the best you can . . we'll consider a return to the traditional Name next week if there are complaints. Remember the first and most important rule of NS is "Have FUN", and we're dead serious about that.

Score calculation: Howie, N4AF, kindly updated NS Score Calculator to version 1.15 to accommodate this year's more liberal dupe allowance. see

The NS Ladder has a dedicated and expanding fan-base ... we'd love to have you join. A great and quick contest entertainment for Thursday night, and the family probably won't notice you've disappeared for a while.

See you on Thursday. Questions/comments to Bill n6zfo
