 It's the WRTC Contest this weekend.  I have listed 5 awards for contacting Headquarters stations.  This year, the event is being hosted in the United States, and my contest club, the YANKEE CLIPPER CONTEST CLUB was responsible for setting up dozens of identical stations with the same antenna system on sites which are as identical as possible.  The best contesters from all over the world will be competing on as equal a basis as is possible to see who is really the best.  Look for stations using the W1A to W1Z, K1A to K1Z and  N1A to N1Z single letter special event calls and give them a pileup.

1. I'm  the custodian of the USA-County Award sponsored by CQ Magazine and am writing the monthly Awards Column in that magazine. The first column appeared in the January 1998 edition.  I will need rules and samples of awards on a pretty regular basis. If your club or group sponsors awards, or you can send me good quality photocopies of awards that you have received, I need good quality samples or copies for this column. This is an excellent chance to gain world wide publicity for your groupSend material to: Ted Melinosky K1BV, 12 Wells Woods Road, Columbia, CT.  06237 USA

2. Foreign Postage - Bill Plum offers a wide variety of mint foreign postage and DXer supplies at competitive rates. Highly recommended.
