Yep, I'm a new one on this list...Bet you've seen these
questions b4:

1) Is there a faq from this reflector (or other historical

2) Aside from the QSL Information Database (the IK4LZH server)
what is the best source for QSL info? For example, I recently
worked TY8GUP on 7Mhz. Both IK4LZH and a Northern Calif. DX
Cluster could not supply any info...(Actually, I live in So.
Cal but I'm not sure of a Cluster I can get to from my location
near Thousand Oaks.)

Any alternatives/ideas newsletters etc?

Kindest Regards,
-Mike (AK6N)

Comments: Great conditions on 15, our run station stayed there most of Saturday 
(1300+Q's before changing bands). 
Low bands were a little tough to be heard in the Carribean /SAm. Hrd only a 
couple Europeans but they were calling, not running. Zone 18 on 160 was a 
surprise, as was the JW on 80! 
Lots of zone 34 activity - SU2MT called us (worked on 2 bands!), and we also 
worked 5A1A, ET3AA, 3V8BB, FR5DX, VQ9IO and more in what can be some tough 
zones for us. 38 zones worked in total - missed 22 and 26.

Best last minute "MODIFICATION": adding a WX0B Stack Match box just before the 
contest. I haven't any x over x over x stacks (yet) but being able to run any 
one of the monobanders plus the log plus one of the TH-6's in various 
directions really helped our running.
