This is a fun one, and good for newcomers. Speeds are in the straight key range and the ops will usually go as slow as you need them to. It is a gentle introduction to CW contesting, but be prepared for some weak signal work. For people who like dabbling in CW contests and normally 'search and pounce', this is a good opportunity to practice holding a frequency - fun for us little pistol stations who can't do that in a big contest.
I hope some folks will read this and give it a try tonight. I'll be there.
