Subject: KG9N/C6A back home
Well I am back home and back to work. How time flies!
I made just shy of 2000 qso's from c6a using a ts450 and a r7 vertical.
qso was with aa5tn on 20 cw on August 11 and the last was with k4adk on rs12
on August 18th. The weather at c6a was perfect but the radio conditions were
very poor. I was only able to work about 150 europe stations during the WAE
contest most of them on 40. Hardly any 20 meter opening over the contest
weekend. The conditions into Europe did get better during the week.
RS12 turned out to be great fun with much interest from people in working me
from there. Thanks to all of those who sent me the rs12 schedule!
Two weeks before I got there hurricane Erin had gone right over Abaco. There
were many trees knocked down, but no loss of life or houses destroyed. I
was staying at Steve Rutledges place (N4JQQ) and he had no damage at all.
However the popular contest spot of c6ahn had some big trees blown down
taking the 80 and 160 antennas, screens blown out, and the tailtwister
broke. I took down I new tailtwister for c6ahn and installed it. I think
the contesters going down should be in good shape as the yagis were not
the rotors working now, and ken had the rest of damage fixed pretty much
before I left. I did operate from that qth one evening...and everything
to work well.
Thanks to all who worked me!

Subject: K0SF Tower CUP: Help !
My city council approved 130' tower CUP 8/10, but since a building permit
was not yet issued, the city council decided it should conduct a "special
hearing" to address specified environmental issues raised in a petition
routed through MN Environmental Quality Board to city.
Every issue imaginable has been raised, and successfully countered. The
city attorney has asked that no other discussion or comments be recorded
unless to address the following:
1.) "Construction of such a tower, with its accompanying nine or so guy
wires ... will produce a significant harzard to these (waterfowl) birds."
2.) "Potential impact of the damage to breeding areas, nests, young birds,
etc. could be significant if this tower were to collapse into the wetland."
I have a significant environmental impact study to the contrary coming
shortly from ARRL, but I would like to hear from anyone with evidence to the
I have checked with EIA, TIA, CTIA, local power company, but ARRL is only
lead so far.
Thanks for your help.

Maybe I've missed something from IARU. Can anyone provide the IARU
guidelines on contest frequencies?
