Thursday Night Contesting
Sponsored by the Northern California Contest Club
The Northern California Contest Club sponsors Thursday evening (NA local time) contest practice sessions of 30 minute duration. On the Thursday (and, sometimes Friday also) prior to a major contest weekend, the practice format follows the upcoming contest.
NS (NCCC Sprint)
Generally, on other Thursday evenings, a special format is followed, called NS or "NCCC Sprint". The NS began in the summer of 2004 as a snappy, concise contest occurring most Thursday nights, North American time. The power limit is 100 watts.
NS rules vary from week to week according to announcements to CQ-Contest and the NS/NSL Reflector, nccc-blue. Often, same-band duplicates are allowed, the exchange format is varied, or applicable bands are changed. As with NS Ladder, scores are reported to 3830 scores.
