     Comments:   Took Sunday off to go to the Findlay (OH)
Hamfest.  On the trip I rovered using the call W8AJ/R for about
18 2M qsos from EN91 and EN81.  My travelling companions (and I!)
were impressed that I worked K8GP from both grids using a IC-746
(see, they're not all bad :)>   ) and a 5/8 wave mag mount.
     From home this was my first contest with two radios
interlocked to prevent simultaneous transmissions.  I had some RF
feedback problems on 222 SSB, but otherwise it went smoothly. 
Now to see if it can be done at 5X the rate on HF!
