I've tried it too but always had the problem of some sections having only S&P
operators on, or so it seemed.  I'd get up around 75 or so and couldn't find the
last ones.  I'd start CQing and they'd eventually call me.  Frustrating.  Oh
well, the mugs look nice either way.  :-)

But you have inspired me, Al.  Next year I'm going for 80x80.  Hope I don't end
up with a gap in Mug Row.

73, Bill W7TI
