VY1AAA sure relieves a lot of anxiety. Thanks.
With respect to the PVRC SS primer, 80/75 are definitely NOT the "money bands" for us left coasters...

As Art pointed out, the #1 rule is to have fun.
In SS, a lot of people get in just to get a sweep. ff the propagation
holds like it did on CW, that should be an easy job.
I'm going to be on from VY1AAA again, and hopefully, there will be a few
others on from NT, like last year.
Don't sweat a sweep if you are on for the duration. If by Sunday mid-day
you don't have it, then start worrying.
See ya on the bands,
Gerry, W1VE at VY1AAA for SS
