If you want to improve your CW skills, work some new states, see how good your rig is, hear the bands fill up with CW or just have a good time, try the CW SS this weekend.
Starts Saturday afternoon and goes till Sunday night. Work up to 24 hours of the 30. Full rules and details here:http://www.arrl.org/contests/rules/2009/novss.html
SS is diferent from most other contests in that the exchange is longer and more complicated, and you can only work other stations once. And since it's primarily a North American contest, you don't need a big DX setup to have a good time.
My first was in 1968, and I've only missed one since then.
Hope CU in SS 2009!
