    Hi gang,
    
    Jim, W1FMR, is at Dayton and will be making the "official" announcement
    about the new contest being sponsored by the NE-QRP club. The contest
    is called QRP AFIELD--1994. Here are the rules in ASCII format--not
    pretty, but you get the idea.
    
    Jim has a much better looking copy of the rules. Also, the rules and
    entry form will be published in the next issue of _72_ magazine.
    
    Now, all we need is decent weather and good propogation. Hope it turns
    out to be a fun event and that many of you will be able to participate.
    
    Enjoy,
    Chet, AA1EX
