I plan to run this weekends contest like this:
18:00z-19:00z EM67 near Elizabethtown KY
20:00z-21:00z EM77 south of Louisville KY.
22:00z-2300z EM68 Salem, IN [around 1000' elevation]
0000z-???? EM78 near Henryville, IN [around 1000' elevation]
Early Sunday I plan to head for the grid corner of EM69/79/EN60/70 and

I have 4 bands this time out!!
6m-100 watts- 2 elements @ 30' Icom 746

222- 25 watts- 7 elements @ 25' Icom 746 + DEM 222/28 no amp here yet...
432-100 watts- 19 elements at 15' Icom 746 + DEM 432/28 + Brick
Come on band conditions!! With 4 bands and 10 grids with any luck at
all I should be able to set a personal best score. Although with the
great conditions we had on 6 last year, it may be a little tough. But
I'm really looking forward to it.
