Yes bring them along on the trip. My XYL sat and read books on the beach in
Aruba for a whole week while I played (worked!) in CQWW one year. At first I
felt sorry for her that she had nothing to do....Turns out thats exactly what
she wanted. Nothing to do! (However, we did do our share of snorkling/swiming
and other fun stuff after the contest was over.)

BTW, Just this past weekend, the same XYL and I were working in the backyard
when I saw her gazing at the 7 ele monobander on my rotatable skyneedle. She
looked at me and said,"You know, in a way, it really is quite beautiful isnt

Wow, How about that! 
Wish I had a tape recorder:-)

I also replied to Lee regarding the DX reflector:

>>>Propagation is important to dxers too!

Here's Lee's reply to me:

I guess we'll have to find somewhere else to do it!!

122 Q's


 -TS940S 100w
 -6 ele Tribander @ 40ft
 -2 ele 40m @ 45ft

N6TR ver 5.20 (1st time used)

I should get 2 STUPID awards for this effort.  First, I had a 15 minute 
8 minutes into the contest after working WA2SRQ for the second time. I was
attempting to figure out how to log him and the computer kept calling him a 
DUPE and
wouldn't allow me to log him.  After much head scratching and manual 
reading, figured
it out.  Then, today at lunch when I was preparing the log to send to Tree, 
I did a COPY
of log.tmp to log.dat instead of a MERGE and I basically destroyed my log. 
bad happening.  HELLO negative points :-))  !!!

Band conditions were very bad here in SD, signals were strange on 20m.  One 
a signal would be loud, then the next very weak.  Best sigs go to K5ZD, K7GM 
and K4PQL
with many other good ones.  40m was  a veritable weak signal fest.

But, had a great time again, can't wait for the next one!  I need more time 
to figure
out N6TR software!

Thanks for all the Q's

73,  Todd  WD0T

Subject: Full details on the SEANET contest

Please find below the entire rules, etc. for the SEANET contest, from 
Eshee, 9M2FK.
 Obviously, the sooner this is posted on the contest reflector, the 
sooner it will appear in bulletins and ham magazines. We will probably do 
a mailing separately to the likes of QST, etc. Rather than for me to post 
this to the contest reflector, which I do not subscribe to, I thought it 
might be more appropriate for you to do this -- if that's Okay with you.
 Looking forward to our sked this evening; have not checked the solar 
condx yet, but will do after this.
 Here follows text, rules, etc. of the SEATEST '95.

If you require a result slip be sent to you, please enclose 3 irc's
together with your entry.  
Please post your entry logs to the address below :-
P O BOX 13

The only real anomalies I note is the inclusion of ZK (Cook Is) which is 
slap in the mid-Pacific, and the exclusion of KH0 if they are going to 
include KH2... (but that's nit-picking?); also feel that YA should be in 
there, and wonder why the Asian countries of the former USSR might not be 
included -- not that they check in to SEANET very often. UA0, UA9 and JT 
would seem to fit the bill too, but it could be argued that they are in 
Region 1. Anyhow, let me know if sending this on to the Contest Reflector 
poses any problems, and if so, I'll look up the address in the CQ Almanac 
and post it myself. It should be easy enough either to forward, and edit 
out my contents in pine, or to save it to a file, edit it, add any 
comments of your own, and then post.
 See you on sked.
