From Brad / WF7T:
ARRL Sweepstakes is this weekend! The exchange makes this a fun and slightly challenging contest, but where else could a person work all states in less than 24 hours? 20 through 10 meters has been Hot Hot Hot so this should great! If nothing else get on for a few hours Sunday afternoon or early evening give us poor guys a contact!
By the way, I will be on as K4TCG operating from K0EJ’s fantastic mountain top multi-tower contest station near Chattanooga. Please call us if you hear us (and you WILL HEAR US!)
November 26-27th (UTC) will be the fantastic CQ World-wide DX contest,CW edition. There will be some juicy DX out there and easy pickings! Search and pounce to add to your country totals or try to run them…either way it should be really fun in between turkey sandwiches and bowl games.
A few others fun contests coming up:
- ARRL 160-Meter Contest 2200Z, Dec 2 to 1600Z, Dec 4
- ARRL 10-Meter Contest 0000Z, Dec 10 to 2359Z, Dec 11
- ARRL Rookie Roundup, CW 1800Z-2359Z, Dec 18

On the DX scene, I have been working new ones like crazy, breaking pile-ups with my 100W and wire antennas. I bet others in the club could too! Here is a link to active DXpeditions: http://www.ng3k.com/Misc/adxo.html
