Good Day Folks:
   I  just wanted to let everyone know that there would be a Wy. station on
the air this weekend for the SS. I am sorry I was out of town for the CW
weekend but that happens. I look forward to putting in a full 24 hours so I
hope to work as many sections as I can. Best of luck to everyone and I hope
you all have a blast.
                                                 Warren (Rev) Morton  WS7W

Big antennas, high in the sky, are better than small ones, low.

W1AF is America's Oldest Amateur Radio Club, founded in 1909.

It was operated in CW SS by KO1O, Ph.D., a former Harvard Physics
professor who now works for Polaroid (because you can't always eat
prestige, among other reasons), and an undergraduate (a 5!).  I think it
was KC5DJM.

The station was reinvigorated, as far as contesting goes, by K3UOC
(7Z5OO) in the '80's.  I first met K1EA because I was the operator at
W1AF in CW SS 1973 (CK 09) and K1EA was living one block off Harvard
Square in a group house.  As he was running 500 watts and was a six
minute walk away, he was rather loud.  As I was running the club's
NCL-200, I was louder (at least at his place).  That was just about the
last time I was ever louder than Ken.

P.S.  Facts you never knew:  W0ZV (now W4ZV) was also MBA '72.  Rusty
Epps W6OAT was MBA  '70 (I think).  CW men of Harvard.

[Now watch -- I'll get flamed (most discreetly, I'm sure) by K2WR and
N6BV --

Hi Folks,

The replies I got out of the reflector crew in this matter was
not that positive... Most replyers said "No, you can't do it!",
and some even told me that the contest organizers said no.

However, in the middle of everything else, I received this note
from Bob/K3EST:

>Hi Jon,
>Sorry to take a while to respond to your note.
>Yes, it is OK to use the same call sign for several single band
>entries. Of course as you mentioned NO help should happen between
>bands unless you are MS or MM.


>Bob, K3EST

So, I guess Bos represents "the law" here...  hi

73 to y'all, and CU from SL3ZV on 20, 40, 80 and 160 !!
