as I miss that family day (and our anniversary on Nov 23) almost every
year in order to work the contest from the Caribbean. Unfortunately,
there is no place to move it that I am aware of that would preserve the
fall propagation conditions. There is the weekend between the two SS
contests, but that is occupied by the OK/OM DX Contest. Maybe the
sponsor would swap weekends, since Thanksgiving would not be a
consideration there, but this would give us CQWWSSB, CWSS, CQWWCW, and
SSBSS four weekends in a row (except in the rare case where there are
five full weekends in October. I don't know if that would be much of an
improvement. 73, John, K4BAI.
