   Just a little note from actual live experiences, at kp4bz
 we had problems due to the short spacing between antennas  
 specifically with 40 and 15 in the same tower, both antennas
 at the same direction will make the 15 perform like a short
 dipole and a simple turn of 90 deg will make them live again
 and they performed beautifully!

                                gracias y suerte..

Ah, now here is a problem we didn't foresee.  With a large group, and the
special multiplier required for IFDC, one week is just not enough!  The
problem has been complicated by my late return from a wedding in Idaho, (due
to an unexpected encounter with unidentified viruses of the intestinal
kind), I apoligise to those who had the superior skills or luck and made the
original deadline.

So, after a quick consultation we have decided to extend the deadline for
IFDC submissions to:

   midnight, PDT, Saturday, July 15, 1994

This seems to have been just as much FUN as we had hoped!  A few soapbox
comments to encourage all of you who qualify to send in an entry:

Working with the new operators was a blast. Had a 12 year old boy and 10
year old girl working the mike for a while, with me logging and coaching.
Probably the most fun I ever had on Field Day (I've been through a few!). 
(Chas, N8RR)

This may be the first time a single club has run two separate 2A operations
and scored them both in the Top-10. Watch the QST results for W5NN vs N5FD.
(Roy, AD5Q)

My novice station was a bust so Im adding more Tech stations in hopes of
gettin them out.  I did find a brand new Extra who just got his initial
ticket this year... and sat down to a 80 qso hour on 20 meters!!  Nice for
his first FD/contest!  (Hank, K2UVG)

Barb's rate improved to 120+ during her wee hours on 40m SSB after she had
groked the Sump Pump Theory of Pileup Management: "Either you work 'em
faster than they leak into the pile, you drown, or you bail."  (Dave, W6QHS
as transcribed by me)

I'll get a preliminary score summary out as soon as I get caught up with
everything at work, but certainly by this week end.  We will be posting the
winners by 1 August, and sending out those plaques and special personalized
Field Day Clean Sweep BROOM and DUSTPAN souvenir sized mementos soon after,
so get your entry in!

P.S. Dave reports that one CAC member has asked him whether SS type
multipliers ought to be added to Field Day scoring.  There ought to be a
thread in that one.
