However many contests we enter they each have their charm.  It is time to enjoy this one.
I am loading the truck for this weekend's contest and will be out with equipment from 50 MHz to 10 GHz.  The bottom four are reliable 100 W stations with eight foot yagis.  On 902/3, 1296 and 2304 I have ten watt stations with smaller loops, the remainder are a little more QRP.  I have addressed the loss in September of LO on 10 GHz and once again have a stable transverter on all microwave bands.
The weather looks stable, quiet and in the vicinity of freezing all weekend so I should track to better than 90% of my schedule.
I expect to execute the following route (times in GMT):
SaturdayFN04ia  1900 to 2020FN13ax  2220 to 2320
SundayFN14ba  0000 to 0200FN04xa  0230 to 0400FN02ax 1530 to 1630EN92fh  2030 to 2200EN82ud  2330 to 2430
MondayEN81rx  0120 to 0250EN82ra  0310 to 0400
I will be making noise on 144.237 during transits and when not otherwise engaged.
I won`t have access to prop logger but will accept skeds, please e-mail ve3oil at yahoo.ca
