Contest Resources from W4EA

During recent morning discussions of ham radio contests, Dan W4EA, an enthusiastic contest operator,  shared some resources for our consideration. His emails provided web links to various contest calendars, operating tips, and logging software (i.e. N1MM). I've added these links as two new groups in our Bell Ringers Links page. You'll see them in the third row of the matrix there.

Thanks, Dan!

Six Meter Beacon at NØSAP

Here is the announcement from NØSAP about his new beacon:
As of Saturday, November 5th, 2011 I have a new Six Meter Beacon on the air.  The frequency is 50.063.5 running 8 watts to a J-Pole with a Alinco DX-70.  I think this is the only six meter beacon in the State of Missouri.  Any reports will be appreciated.  "SAP"  NØSAP
