This was my first rover in the September contest.  After having a most 
AWESOME rove last January where we did really well, we wanted to see if 
we could beat our score.  We did!  It was a new personal best for Marc 
and I.  It was also nice to rove in 70 degree weather and not in freezing 
temps with blowing snow!  The only weather hiccup was Sunday when it 
rained, but we didn't complain!

Just wish more of you HF only folks would discover the joy and fun of VHF 
contesting!  :-)
