octopus pot will be set on "low Boil" as soon as we arrive.
This years team has increased by 2 ops. 4 are newcomers to the
Here are the members and the likely bands you will hear them

knows that scatter might be our only hope on that band! Listen

KP4XS-15 meters. I just hope the band opens to somewhere other
than LU!QTH South Carolina PVRC Member

done over at W3LPLs for the last 20 years.QTH MAryland PVRC
