I was listening to everyone in the Pacific Northwest with envy last
night, Tree. Not a peep of any Europeans down here in Southern
California. I guess Arizona got a piece as I heard AA7A working
someone (might have been G4AMT) and looks like KC7V got in
on the fun as well.

The best opening European opening  I experienced last season
didn't occur until mid February. I hope us SoCal guys don't have
to wait that long this year.
