[CQ-Contest] PJ2T Needs Ops for CQWW SSB

We could use some help at PJ2T for CQWW SSB.

What happened is that we were able to build an all-CCC club team for the 
first time ever for this contest. (We're mainly a CW club, but we were 
trying to get some SSB interest up so that the club members who are helping 
to pay for the station could really enjoy the station.) Then the planets 
mis-aligned, Pluto got demoted, and almost all of our team was lost 
suddenly and recently to unforeseeable job problems. W4PA and I are all 
who's left, with N8BJQ a "Maybe" also because of job problems.

In addition, we had hoped to do some significant antenna maintenance in the 
ongoing battle against the salt but have not been able to find a second 
tower climber.

Interested? We planned a Multi/Single but will ratchet that up to Multi/2 
if we can recruit a big enough team. W4PA ( a CCC club member) has first 
call on one of the beds in the West bedroom. N8BJQ (also a CCC member) is 
next in line, but he may not be able to appear. Cindy (my XYL) and I will 
be in the East Room, briefing the presidential press on the contest. Far as 
we know, Sunset Waters Beach Resort, the hotel next to the station, has 
plenty of space available at $109/night/room. Per ROOM, not per person.

Let me know? Sorry about the short lead, but the CCC team crash happened 
only this week.

You can see http://www.pj2t.org for tons of information about the station 
and about traveling to Curacao. It's easy to get there on the daily 
American Airlines 737s from Miami.
