Massive numbers of incoming telephone calls to Mellon Bank and FCC tie up
personnel at both locations. STOP  All other work stopped.  STOP.  Please
stop.  STOP.  de K4VUD

Pa. reports massive traffic tie-up.  Millions of so-called "hams"--crazed
radio men from all over the country--are reported descending on an office
of the Mellon Bank.  Seen clutching weirdly-colored papers with massive
lists of strange coded letter combinations (rumored to be a latent commie
plot), these "hams" have created grid-lock for over seventeen miles in all
directions.  SWAT teams have been brought in from as far away as Pensacola
and Durban to quell the disturbance.  
Many of the victims over run by the "hams" were dazed and murmuring
"Vanity, vanity, all is vanity."  The "hams" themselves, perhaps related
to the Freedmen movement, wore crazed expressions and could be a part of a
massive new underground cult, the 610 Movement.  
Further reports indicate extensive, redundant commentaries on Vanity
Calling now clog internet chat lines and reflectors.  More later.

As a few of you who tried my attempt at a LOGCFG and .DOM file for the 
Washington SAlmon RUN last weekend know there were some "bugs". With Tree's 
help I have since ironed them out. If you would like a clean copy of a set of 
files that work for this contest drop me an E-mail. At worst you can use them 
as a template for "rolling your own" in a future contest. This is for the "In 
state" version only. I think that the  "out of state" version worked OK but 
no one has sent me any info one  way or the other.

TRLog continues to amaze me in its adaptability. For appliance operators in 
standard contests its a no brainer, for those of us who like to taylor things 
to our specific needs the program is the best and continues to get better.

I think that the rest of the world has had enough of the Vanity Call
issue.There must be somewhere the discussion can be taken other than a
"Contest Forum". Any relationship between Vanity Calls and Contesting is
purely imaginary.

Give it a rest!
