BARTG RTTY Sprint Contest
The idea of a sprint contest is to go as fast as you can and make as many contacts as you can in a fixed period. Following the success of the sprint contest in the Autumn of 1998, another one was held in October 1999. In 2000 the Sprint Contest moved to a new permanent date in January.

BARTG 2005 Sprint Contest - Rules
