Hi Tim

Not sure what information you are looking for.  I am using last years
plan as a starting point, and with the help of open logs (VERY
helpful), I was able to come up with an operating plan for myself.
Have not seen any propagation predictions yet, but I figure something
will be posted before the contest.

Just wrapping up my antenna work for another season, so I think we are
getting close :-)
