Next SSB Sprint has been RESCHEDULED to Nov 12, 2017!
The North American SSB Sprint contest, originally scheduled for October 1, has been rescheduled to November 12. "Our thoughts and wishes for an effective and orderly recovery from the recent weather events in the Caribbean and southern US, and the earthquake activity in Mexico have prompted us to reschedule the Oct 1st NA SSB Sprint Contest" according to Bob Hayes, KW8N, NA SSB Sprint Committee Chairman. "As much as many enjoy this contest and were looking forward to participating in it this weekend, it is necessary and appropriate to give wide berth to the health and welfare communications now taking place on the Amateur Bands. We encourage all Amateur Radio operators to assist or donate to the recovery efforts through appropriate aid organizations."

Since N1MM Classic is deprecated / no longer supported, it will not be updated to properly score the new multipliers.
We highly recommend you upgrade to the new N1MM Logger Plus, as the version released on Jan 28. 2015 fully supports the NA SSB Sprint!
If you still want to use N1MM Classic, we believe you can do it, but we are still researching how this would work, exactly. If you can help us expand this FAQ to tell others how they can still use N1MM Classic for this contest, we’d really appreciate the help. Just use our Contact Us form.
N1MM Logger Plus (N1MM+)
Meanwhile, here is the old information we had on N1MM Logger Plus:
N1MM Logger Plus website: http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/
NOTE: The contest is listed as “SprintSSB”
NOTE: You must put in the prefix for DX entities.. e.g.. when logging Puerto Rico, you must enter KP4, not PR. When logging USVI, you must enter KP2, not VI.
If you have further information to share about N1MM+ in SSB Sprint, please let us know.

TR4W - TR for Windows
TR4W version 4.56 supports the SSB Sprint with the new April 2017 multipler changes! Release 4.56 may be downloaded from http://tr4w.net
The following tip comes from Tree N6TR:
There are a few commands you can add to your config file to update the multiplier lists for TR Log to make it consistent with the new multipliers announced for the NCJ Sprint contests. Here are the items you will need to add. It is best to put these at the end of your config file – or at least – for sure – after the CONTEST statement.
First off – you will need to add KH6 to the list of domestic multipliers. This can be done with:
ADD DOMESTIC COUNTRY = KH6
The second step is to change the name of the domestic filename from the default of S49P8.DOM (which gets setup automatically by the CONTEST statement) to the file SPRINT.DOM.
DOMESTIC FILENAME = SPRINT.DOM
Now – the only issue left is that you do not have a SPRINT.DOM file. You can download it in a zip file you have to unzip: SPRINT.ZIP or I can send you one by return email if you like. You can also generate your own by following these steps:
1. Open up a DOS prompt.
2. Get into the directory where you have the TR Log files.
3. Type “COPY S50P14DC.DOM SPRINT.DOM”
Using a text editor – open up SPRINT.DOM and find the two entries for NF and LB. You will need to combine these two into one line to look like this:
NfLb = NfLb, VO1, VO2, NF, LAB, LB
Make sure you then delete the two lines for NF and LB.
Note that the remaining display order has all of the Canadian multipliers grouped near the end of the list. If you want to change how this looks – you can move them around in your SPRINT.DOM file.
If you have any issues or problems with these changes – please let me know.

I just pushed a dev / nightly version with this new mult list. And it’s very likely a newer official release (which will include this mod as well) will be available before the next contest (April 2, 2017).
