ARLX008 ARRL November Sweepstakes Changes

A reminder: The ARRL November Sweepstakes now includes three new
precedence letters, and the precedence indicates a station's entry
category.

Under the revised SS exchange, stations will send ''Q'' for single
operator, QRP (5 W PEP output or less); ''A'' for single operator,
low power (less than 150 W PEP); ''B'' for single operator, high
power (more than 150 W PEP); ''U'' for single operator, unlimited;
''M'' for multioperator; and ''S'' for school club.

The ARRL Contest Branch has notified the developers of popular
computerized logging software to take the changes into account in
their programs. All stations using computerized logging now must
submit their electronic log file, not just a paper file.

In another change, the multioperator category will be allowed
unlimited band changes.

The 1999 ARRL November Sweepstakes is November 6-8 (CW) and November
20-22 (phone). Complete rules appear in the October QST. Contact
ARRL Contest Branch Manager Dan Henderson, N1ND, at n1nd@arrl.org or
860-594-0232 for more information.
