I'll traveling for the rest of this week, covering a number of (at least)
uncommon grid squares in NV, northern AZ & NM, and southern UT & CO. I've
no specific plans other than to activate lots of grid squares (perhaps on
grid square boundaries if timing permits). All are DM grid, possibilities
include DM07-08,16-18,25-27,35-37,46-48,56-58, 66-67 and DM76-77.
I was disappointed not to have AO-51, but noted that SO-50 should be up at
about the same times that AO-51 is. It's a little harder to work hand-held
unless there are other people talking. So, come on folks, give me a call
and make lots of noise if SO-50 is otherwise quiet, so everyone can find it
easier. Of course, i'll also work AO-27 whenever i can. As before, SASE
is not necessary, as i'll send cards to all that i log, but do, please, work
me near home (CM88 and often CM87) if i don't already have your grid square.
I hope to hear from lots of you. 73's and good luck!

Hey, OK JOhn !
I need DM57 if you get there. Will be checking
SO-50 and AO-27 when I can.
Also need DM28 but don't think you're going there.

Hi again all,
Well, my All Points Bulletin for a used M2 436CP42UG and 2MCP22 doesn't
like it's going to pan out.
Next question....Where would be the best price top purchase these?
I have looked at Burghardt and a few others but just want to make sure
I haven't overlooked a good price somewhere.
Any help appreciated,
A good friend will come and bail you out of jail,
A TRUE friend will be sitting next to you saying.....
"DAMN THAT WAS FUN"

I'm not sure that I see the upside to someone "handing out quick contacts" that will ultimately be tossed because he broke the rules.... invalid Q's are invalid for BOTH parties, are they not? If that was someone's one and only satellite contact, there goes their 100-point bonus!
