> At some point I expect to show up in CN89 and I may take another run at

> The main effort this year will be on 50 Mhz (I will be running my usual 
> IC7300, 375 Watt amp and 3 element beam.)  I will also have horizontal beam

> Sorry for the lack of details.  I am really at the mercy of the weather and

> 73 and good luck all in the contest.
