This is how we announced the 'test back then:
We'll need volunteers to operate Colorado QRP Club call signs WØCQC and NØCQC to provide lucky operators with extra bonus points throughout the contest! Although each call sign can be transmitted simultaneously they need to be under the control of different operators at different locations.
This is a great opportunity to learn a bit about contesting during a short (and pleasant) two hour sprint so why not volunteer? (Contact Webmaster)
