Hmmmmmmmm - Sounds like a good buy or three here and I probably would 
bid on another 706 BUT.......wasn't this posted a little after the May 
31, 1996 cutoff date? Or am I missing some subtle humor here?

I'd like to ask for explanations about some strange/incoherence things in my
IARY log :

- I see on this reflector T00SW is "the "new" one from Seborga (TzeeroZeeroSW)"
  Can anyone confirm I have to add the following line in IARU.CTY :

        Seborga:                  28:  T0:    T00SW;  

- Is VQ5Y (itu zone 07) Canada ? Or what contry is it ? This call was unknown
  in mu IARU.CTY but VQ5Y confirm I got the correct callsign.

- IK2MPR told me I can log 59ARI. - "Are you sure ?" - "QSL ..." but be in doubt
  anyway. I see in the list of IARU HQ (of KG1BW) that the Italian HQ were
I2MPQ. Maybe Ik2mpr do a confusion. He's probably in 28, isn't he ?

Best 73s

I beg to differ. Is it not obvious that anyone who eats anchovies on pizza 
has had their ment facilities so impaired as to not have proper judgement?
how then could they be a contester when they could not make the right
decision over such a momentous thing as anchovies? something minor like 
S&P may be within their grasp, but the overall startegy of the contest? I
doubt it.

Besides is it not obvious that Mr. Walsh has an inate fear of the LaTex
Rookies? As such I can barely wonder that he also would like anchovies.

        I don't much care for anchovies myself, although I must confess 
that I did in my younger years before the iron lining on my stomach went 
away.  However, I'll bet that contest operators who eat them do better on 
phone contests.  (All that bad breath probably acts as a natural speech
