Saw your comment on the reflector and just wanted to congratulate you guys 
on the FB score in the 10m test. Congrats!
Don't remember exactly when we (N4GN) worked you, but at the time Tim 
commented "those guys are going to be hard to beat". He was right.

It was a wacky weekend. Es stuff we were working here (WV, PA, NC, etc) was 
incredibly loud for short periods..then suddenly it was all TX, NM and OK.

The F2-Es path which opened up for the east coast to Europe and Scandinavia 
Sunday afternoon never quite made it this far southwest and we had some 
other challenges. I was fighting a nasty cold, Tim's XYL had a severe flu 
attack Sunday morning...and I had to take one of the K9GX DX doggies to the 
vet after she suffered and epileptic seizure. Bottom line...we logged about 
12 hours.

CU next year!

Merry Christmas
