I would like to schedule a phone QSO with anyone who reads this message.
I am participating in the ARRL 10 Meter Contest this weekend and will be
calling CQ on 28.404 + or - 5KC Saturday 12/10 at 15:00 zulu or 10AM
on the East coast of U.S. Look foward to hearing you in the pileup.

Not good enough for ARRL contests !

Here's a line from my QSO discrepancy report for 1993 ARRL DX CW:

    40 CW 20/02/93 1356 R6Y             599CO      599200     UA3 M(0423Z)N

My interpretation:

R6Y's log shows that he worked N2IC at 0432Z.
N2IC's log shows that he worked R6Y at 1356Z.

N2IC looses both QSO (and multiplier) credit for the QSO.  If R6Y had put me in
his log again (as a dupe) at 1356Z, maybe this would have been okay.

While it MAY be illegal to use your amateur callsign on 27 MHz, I'm sure
no one would object if you only used the sacred "LAST TWO..." *belch*

Please watch for K5NA and KU2Q in the 10 meter contest operating mobile
from about 10 different states. If I call you a second time, it will be 
because we changed states.

I wonder, can CT handle that?

On, 40 meters, I have always been amazed by the sunrise (local) opening 
to Europe. When JAs and the Pacific are on the way out, about an hour 
after sunrise, there are always some G and GM stations workable. It's 
early afternoon there!

ANother strange opening found in the recent CW contest was on 15 meters. 
On SUnday during the 2000Z hour, while working KH6 and T32 area, there 
were about 10 OHs booming through. Nothing else in Europe was coming 
through at the time.
