I was out of town on business earlier this week so did not get a chance
to check the PO box until this morning. Not sure when these arrived,
but for those who have not received theirs yet, here goes....

"Rock of Gibraltar" in the background (short writeup on Contents page,
Contest related items: Results 1996 Ten Meter Contest; Two For The Price
of One (adding 6 meters to a HF dipole); Hints & Kinks - Band-data
connector for the FT1000MP; and Happenings - Dayton 97.
Other interesting items: Computer Control for Mobile Ham Radio Operation
(this might be just the thing for operating contests mobile); and CW With
Your H-T (a way to get those 'shack-on-a-belt types' interested in CW).
Front cover photo of AA4S and his Uni-Hat vertical with elevated radials,

when I asked for the catalog!)
