...and don't forget to check 40 at the start of the Sprint.  There are often
quite a few of us down there racking up second radio QSO's...or is it first
radio QSO's, with the second radio on 20?   You pick. 

I like below 7025 better than battling it out with 3Y0X, the RTTY contest, and
SSBers above that...seems like the Sprint went pretty smooth with us moving
down to avoid the RTTY contest in past years.
