Hi Everybody,
Sorry to take up stace with this on the reflector, but maybe someone has had
a similar experience. After submitting a 610 form to the FCC for a change of
address, my license came back not only with the new address, but with a new
call. I have faxed a copy of the old and new licenses to the FCC and a nice
letter explaining what happened. By the way I did not check the new call
box!!! Anybody got any other ideas on how to get this fixed???

To echo this thought.  Let's make something good of this and perhaps this
is it.  IF you are contest deprived, go all 30 and 
count the first 24.  IF you sit at KH6, or KP2, or that rare VE place
then this sounds like a contesters dream to work the total 30 hours
and pass out the multi and see how high you can run that rate meter!

    As one of the people that has commented at various points in NCJ and
again on the reflector that I am personally unimpressed with
guest-operations because I see them as the result of 1.) one, or a group
of people with mega-bucks to blow on a station, but not much motivation,
and 2.) a superb operator with all the motivation and time in the world
but little hardware, and money for bus-fare to the guest station, and
given your comment at the end your recent post, I find that I must
respond. I, for one, am far more impressed with the almost 1400 Qs that
were made with your own station... what a great effort! Thats impressive
in my book. Makes you wonder why you haven't done it before, right?
      Keep it up and save your gas...

Here are some stats from a 940 Q CW log:

Stations with check of 94 or 95:


While some of these may be new club calls I'm sure many are not including the
last call listed who had a great posting here on the reflecter. KG8PE congrats
on a super job.  If anybody knows or lives near any of these guys/gals have 'em
over. If any of the above are planning on visiting MT, gimme a call.
406-463-2310. Above all nice to work you and thanks for the Q. 

-----		----------
<50		7.8%
50-59		28.8%
60-69		27.6%
70-79		19.4%
80-89		7.2% (most kids were playing the stock market)
90-95		9.4%

Q		8.O%(75 Q's)
A		63.0%(592 Q's)
B		29.0%(273 Q's)

BTW This was my first contest with a real contest rig and it sure is nice to
have a CW filter. (930S with 500 hz) If I can stay 10 years behind the
technology power curve I'll be happy. 

Also, changed to DR. PEPPER as refreshment of choice during the test 'cuz
someone said that's what K3ZO drinks. Thanks for a great contest tip, it
