     The plaques for the 2014 Stew Perry have all been mailed out around
the world
to the category winners. Peruse the plaque list for this year, operate
and perhaps you'll receive a 2015 plaque next year at about this time.
     So now is the time to make those improvements to your TX/RX so your
will be in fine fettle for The Stew Perry. It also a good time to do all
the good deeds
necessary to obtain the time to operate in the contest Dec 26/27.
     The Boring Amateur Radio Club appreciates the TopBand community's
for this contest. We also appreciate you letting your DX friends know of
contest and urge all who can operate to do so.
