        Good conditions to the East coast both nights, many W1's were S9+, but              
no Euro's or Africans were heard.  46 JA's worked.                                          
     We also had a problem with CT 8.52 but not with the Check Partial.  If the             
950 was on VFO B and we tried to grab a spot, the radio ended up with the VFO's             
split and neither VFO on the spot freq.  Seemed to work OK if we started on VFO A.

Re: Field Day '94...

1.  I was amazed by the number of well known contest calls I worked in
category 1D. Once you reach Real Contester (tm) status, is FD beneath you?
I guess this is Ham Radio, after all, and it is indegenous to the breed to
sit home, work 700 dupes, and whine about all the lids, rather than go out
to the site, HT in hand, drink your share of the beer, and maybe, just
maybe, help just one of those lousy ops become a better one...

2.  Weird phonetics are sometimes a pain, sometimes funny, especially at
4AM.  If CQ FD November Nine Kilo Sierra doesn't elicit an answer after 10
or 20 calls, November Nine Kinky Sex will invariably get a chuckle and a Q.

3.  Funny how, during an "emergency preparedness drill", if an actual
emergency comes up, such as, in our case, severe weather, everyone hurriedly
disconnects all the power and antennas, grabs a fresh 807, and heads for the

4.  We actually had some non-ham visitors who acted genuinely interested,
put on a spare set of phones, and listened intently for 5 minutes or so, ON

FD is fun.  I hope it always remains thus...
