A few weeks ago, I posted a need for a few back copies of NCJ. The first to
respond didn't actually have all the issues I need. I still need Mar/Apr '88
and Nov/Dec '89. Would whoever contacted me and got a thanks but no thanks 
response please recontact me. I think maybe it was K5GN (but I can't find
your internet address.) 

Sorry for the bandwidth.

I'm new here, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me the
E-mail address for the DX forum/reflector. The magic message,
i.e. subscribe, join, gimmie, etc would be nice also.

Thanks! Gary, WG7X: garymac at connected.com

Excuse me.. but when I retired from Multi multi life over 10 years
ago I had NEVER worked at a multi that did not have a good spotting
network.  Our first run in with ARRL over single ops using spotting
nets was in 1948...so historically speaking spotting via VHF
simplex or repeaters has been around for at least 46 years.  I did
some quick checking, N2AA tapped into spotting from some of the
clubs, I know W3LPL used to overhear all the FRC spots, they
usually beat our guys into the pileups.  Packet is certainly easier
and cleaner, but we are NOT talking about a major change in multi
op strategy as a result of packet...perhaps the guy that passes out
the slips of paper with the spot info is out of work at most
>re K3EST and WAE rules changes..
WAE and packet...finally got T77C b4 20 died Sunday for my first
PACKET FOUND mult the whole weekend.  Perhaps in Europe packet
helped someone, but I suspect it adds little to the ability to
collect the most QTCs...a practice that requires scanning the bands
and working guys that are making enough QSOs to generate QTCs...
My guess is that in theory they just want to create more activity in
their contest, same for the overly ambitious encouragement of 80/40
operation with big multipliers there.  Also if the tales of team
single oping in much of Europe, and Multi multi stations spread
over an entire country are close to true, what possible difference
could not allowing packet make?  

ta ta for now from a Techno Transvestite..."real men don't use
    Chas , K3WW   CFULP at MCIMAIL.COM

trivia questions:
Who was the last single op plus packet to win the ARRL DX Multi
single class?
What East Coast US station won the All Asian SSB Multi Op class a
few years ago with 1 op and packet and less than 100 QSOS?
U gotta play if you want to "win"
