Hello folks:

All I could find to work for a contest this past weekend was the RAEM 
contest, which runs during our nightime and requires exchange of QSO 
numbers and location by way of longitude and latitude.  The 
abbreviations are in Germany, so that East is abbreviated as "O", but 
the others N, W, S are the same as in English.  Surprisingly, there was 
no activity on 40 M in the General Class band before I went to bed, but 
there was some on 80.  I worked RK2FWA and M0SDX, plus three 
statesiders, K1TTT, WB2AA, and AA3B.  I also heard and called, but could 
not work YL0A and LY4CW.  There were a few other Europeans too weak to 
identify and some additional activity, but not much, in the Extra class 


K4BAI SOSB80HP  5 QSOs, 250 QSO points, 291 coordinate difference points 
= final score of 541.  0.7 hour.  Woke up in the middle of the night and 
considered checking in for European sunrise, but it was too cold to get 
out of bed.

Hope everyone has a nice week.  I will be in Valdosta Tuesday and 
Wednesday and hope to see W4BQF there.


John, K4BAI.
