Hi guys/guyesses

Sorry for the bandwidth usage, but I've only just been told that my usual
site for CQWW CW is unavailable, including ants etc - great friends!  I'm
looking for any group or team or whatever who may have been let down by
an operator or just need another CW operator for this weekend.

There are several countries where a 'G' can operate without any special
permission, mainly Europe: CT,DL,EA,EI,ES,F,HA,HB9,HB0,I,LA,LX,LZ,OA,OE,OH,

Further complication may exist with visas.  I'd be grateful for any offers
or suggestions.  You may know rules that I don't.
TIA - Bruce              __...---'-----`---...__

     As you prepare for the contest weekend, try filling and
freezing a half gallon plastic container which formerly held
milk (or your favorite bottled water).  This, with a pair of
"blue ice" style freezer packs in a travel cooler will keep
your drinks cold.  Plant it right next to your operating
chair, eliminating the need to go out and buy a $149 half-
sized refrigerator.

     As the weekend goes on, and the frozen water melts,
drink the water.  It will be cold, refreshing, and water is
good for you.  Have another bottle frozen to keep things
cold for day two.  This small item of preparation will save
you a time-eating, run frequency-losing, trip to the
refrigerator each time you want a cold drink.
