Rumor has it that Ed/K3BVQ might be on 50.400 at times to see if he can grab
a few contacts just for fun. I’ll be there Ed! Willie/WF3M can usually be
found cranking out some CW in around 50.090 – 50.099. The only exchange you

he/she gives theirs. That it! It’s that simple.
If you’re running a logging program it’s wise to check for updates before
the contest starts. Ask me how I know? Stupid computers!!
I hope to run into some of you guys during the contest. I’ll be running
three bands. 6, 2, and 432 CW & SSB. Even though I move around a lot I do

Alex/KA2VLP, Walt/KC3DGC, Joel/KB3OZC, and Pete/K0BOK (rover) just to name a
I hope some of you will give this a try. Whether you make 1, or 100
contacts it’s all good fun. Personally, I’m looking to fill some of those

cooperates it’s a good time to pick up some of those states you need.
See you on the bands… 73 – Leonard/WV3P
