I think I contacted you in the midst of that. It did get a little 
confusing with some stations thinking it was RU practice while other 
stations were trying to make NS contacts. Then there was the guy who 
kept calling CQ in the middle of P49X's runs on 40m. I'm not sure he had 
his macros quite figured out.

I diddled around and got you and P49X on 40m and an Ohio station on 80m. 
I just have to remember to go out to my frigid and snow-covered back 
yard on Saturday to tilt up my vertical. Somehow, I think only having 
80m and 40m dipoles will limit my effectiveness in the RU. <grin>
