I have decided to journey to DM66 and set up the rover as a portable  
station for the Spring Sprint. I will be on a 7500 ft mesa near  
Lybrook NM. I have CW and 50 Watts to a 2 element beam. Southern  
Colorado is easy from here, and the southern part of NM to El Paso is  
also reachable with low, but reasonable SNRs. I worked W5DDR from here  
at a distance of 300 + miles once. So look for me. I will have 50  
Watts to a 2 element Yagi up 15 feet. I hope the band opens for some Es.

Thanks to everyone who worked me in the June Contest last year. A  
plaque (my first ever) for a top ten finish in the limited rover  
division arrived today. I couldn't have done it without contacts from  
all of you, so thanks for helping me win the plaque. Can you tell that  
I am excited?

Listen for me and keep those plans coming. - Duffey
