I'm planning to be operating from Beaver Island, MI in EN75 during the 
contest.  Single-op, likely to be 6M only.  The good news is that if 
Murphy cooperates, I'll have about 6dB more power than last year -- 300+ 
watts to a 5 el about 35 feet up.

To those in the Pacific Northwest -- I will make a point of beaming 
further north this year.  I am hoping to have a beacon running during 
the week or so following the contest, with the idea that if the band 
opens up I can be contacted via telephone for a QSO.  More details on 
that once I figure them out.

I'm unlikely to have the higher bands working this year due to a problem 
with the 2M antenna that I won't have time to fix before the contest, 
and lack of a working 432 rig at the moment.
