Hello again to all crazy grid chasers and operators.....Group2 of the 
K5N DXpedition to the Texas Big Bend area is still short two operators.  
Colin-KB5U has committed to come along and he is well known to be a 
really great operator....so that is one down.  We still have two more 
slots to fill.  I have had a couple of "possibles", but no firm 
commitments yet.

Group2 will be operating from the DL79-DL89 line in the Big Bend Ranch 
State Park.  They will be staying in a 5 star type motel facility and 
operating from an air conditioned motor home.  This is really a chance 
to do a Grid DXpedition in style.  No sleeping on the sand and rocks 
with the scorpions, like Group1 will have to do.  Group2 will be running 
high power and either a 7el or a 5el antenna.  Those are really rare 
grids, so lots of QSOs should result.

The expedition will be in the field from June 20th to June 24th, with 
appropriate travel on either side of that.  IF you would like to join 
this FB effort, please get in touch with me ASAP.  We need to get this 
finalized as soon as possible.  If you can handle a pile up and run WSJT 
meteors at night, you will fit right in.  Not often do you get a chance 
to join a well equipped DXpedition like this one.  Please help us out 
and have a great experience to boot....

If you know someone that might be interested, please pass this 
announcement along....

Thanks for your help....
