..and you lose the QSO. I hereby announce that I will not be operating in
any contest this weekend. If you find my callsign in your log, be sure to
delete the QSO - I will *not* be on.

I am providing this information to be as helpful as all the people who are 
thinking that they will announce their planned operation in every contest
this season.

Please do not clog up the reflector with this sort of thing. IF we all do it,
we could bring the entire Net to its knees.

p.s. I will also not be using my new vanity call this weekend. Nor my new
club call. Nor Fed-Xing anything to Mellon or the FCC.

p.p.s. Only 5 more weekends of preparation until a Real Contest (tm). Come on,
sunspots! 21.201 has grown cold and lonely these past few years...

The text below may explain why my shack's hum comes and goes with no
changes in the wiring.  Sometimes it goes away when I change computer
programs that are running at the time, and often it goes away when I boot
up the full bore of CT-9.  G L   73, K4VUD
