    I just received mine today, and they are great looking. Just wish I could have gotten the Great Brit. station.
    Many Thanks to all those involved for putting on this great event.

    Came here to see if people are getting theirs.
    Glad to see peoples are still rolling in.
    I sent my sheet and money July 10th or so.

    Still waiting for mine! Definitely taking longer this year, but I get it.

    Reading old threads, but good comments, like nuggets.
    I would guess I was the K2B that you contacted.
    Your comments resonated with me.
    I, like you, use low power and sometimes feel I am competing with many kilowatt stations.
    But it isn't necessarily so, as I've discovered.
    And even if it is so, I take that as a challenge. You've got your kilowatt, I've got 100 watts and a wire, strung over a tree limb.
    In the Virginia QSO party last month, I ran a pile-up for almost 90 minutes from one location, with just this set up, on battery. (It's not always like that, no.)
    But that's the satisfaction of designing, building and installing (as high as possible) a wire antenna, in this case, in the field.
    I would love to schedule a QSO to discuss antennas. That's where it's at, not amps.
    What exactly is an "amplifier," anyway? My amps are Virginia Pines.

    Fingers crossed for the remaining four for a clean sweep, de Ei2iP

    Loving the challenge of working as many as I can, well done to all who organised the event and Happy 4th July.

    Anyone have any suggestions on the GB13COL DSTAR reflector information from their page? They say their reflector is 63B but when I take a look at REF063B that's not in England, and XLX063B is not active. Checking the status page for the in-England or England-centric reflectors shows their club repeater is nowhere to be found, which their page implies is how they're reaching the reflector.

    Anyone have any luck with GB13COL on DSTAR? Making a point to make a DSTAR contact in a contest for... a variety of reasons.
