Suffering the ravages of the common cold virus, I stopped by the PO box
on the home from work hopeful that I would find something to make me feel
better.  Buried between all of the holiday gift catalogs were the latest
NCJ and CQ Contest along with a fishing magazine.


Front cover photo of the view from the S50E 20 Meter beam.  And there is
a feature article inside on the station and club!
