Huh? Either of you guys on 15 meters? If I had had a real antenna on
15 meters, I wouldn't have had time to get up and do anything, except
during off hours. 

Only the US has a major holiday Memorial Day weekend. Lack of US
doesn't make it boring for US participants, does it? You would get in
it for the WAOPP (Worked All One Pointer Prefix, used to be the
legendary WAZPP - Worked All Zero Point Prefix) award? That might be
down 'counta Memorial Day.

Plenty of stations to work, but if you want to spend the weekend on a
delicious fishing trip to the lake, go for it! Each to his own.

Was it trout? Did you cook it in butter? Ymmmm.

73, Guy.
