First TCG try at Sprint. Tennessee should have been plentiful. 20 was slow at 
the start, almost pure western US (man was N2IC loud on 20!). Did get a 
smattering of other stuff later in the first hour but weak. 40 went long pretty 
soon after moving there. Tried earlier but not enuff activity.  Tried to go to 
80 early but again not enuff activity. Need that second radio! Felt like we were
playing into the West Coast Game Plan (great score Tree!!).

K0EJ breakdown follows:

02Z    17   24    1    42   154
03Z    53    0    0    53   207

Ran TS-930 to TH7 at 65', INV Vee for 40/80. I have 3el Hygain 40 mtr beam at 
55' but seemed like it was always pointed at the wrong direction so spent quite 
a bit of time using the wire. (I checked, it points in the direction the rotor 
box says, I've been wondering abt that F/B!! Guess I need more tower!) First 
time I ever really enjoyed the Sprint-must be because I broke 200 Qs with low

I ran across a new on-line computer service the other day. Looks like an 
on-line classified ad system for buying/selling/swapping ham gear. It's 
going to be free for while. Looks like a pretty interesting idea. The 
phone number is 1-810-486-4878
