Sunday at 0900 UTC on 14349 kHz;
ALL welcome irrespective of keying type.
NCS (QNN) will take check ins (QNI), please give your callsign only please and no report or anything else at this stage.
NCS will give each check-in a turn number (QRY) and ask you to <AS>, wait your turn.
Then when there are no more check-ins, each station transmits in turn, in the order given in the QNS (list of stations).
At the end of the round, NCS will make another CQ SSN and also invite one or two other stations to make a CQ SSN.
Thus stations arriving late should wait to hear a CQ SSN before joining in, to avoid confusion.
Then the round continues with NCS giving another QNS (station list), and another round starts.
This sequence of events continues until all have dropped out or gone QRT.
