    So where is the link to the rules, Dates, Times, Etc????????

    OR you could have actually given the dates and times to be on whatever bands.

    OR is this really just another troll post/poll.

    Last time he did that he was trying to get everybody to operate the SSB portion of the NAQP during the weekend scheduled for the CW portion.

    Troll post/poll? Greg? Never!

    Because nobody has a card made with a stock photo they found somewhere. The only antennas and/or towers pictured on QSL cards worldwide are pictures of that person's own. Yep, no chance of anyone ever using pictures other than their own equipment on a QSL card. I guess that means I own the lake and mountains that were on one of my old ones. I better find out where they are and make sure nobody is littering.

    BTW, "Get your foot out" would be just another day in the life of your posting. To say "Get your stinking foot out" tends to become a bit more of an attack. Might want to be more careful in the future to avoid going too far without realizing it.

    I will try and get on the radio a little Saturday....I need to cut some firewood Saturday and will be working all day on Sunday.
    However I will be handing out EM67 on 6 & 2 meters as well as 70 cm all SSB on Saturday morning I hope.

    Have fun

    Hi Mike,

    I plan to get on this weekend as time permits.

    Since K9KJM is whining about the contest info, Here's some.

    Object: To work as many amateur stations in as many different 2 degrees x 1 degree grid squares as possible using authorized frequencies above 50 MHz. Foreign stations work W/VE amateurs only.
    Date and Contest Period: The date will be announced annually by the ARRL but will generally be the third or fourth weekend in January. Begins 1900 UTC Saturday, ends 0359 UTC Monday (January 17-19, 2009).

    You want more go here:

    These comments make this person look like a F**l

    So these comments make me look like a fool (or in your spelling F**l) where as you advertising the wrong contest makes you look like a genius? It's going to take a lot of medication and therapy to figure that one out. Oh well, as long as the couch is comfortable I guess.

    You know Greg, I am having fun with you but you are taking it way too seriously. Relax and take my comments in the fun in which they are meant.

    The above only illustrates that everybody can make a simple mistake or hit the wrong date. In this case you went with what you heard somebody calling on the radio. If it were actually entirely your doing then it could be considered an insult but because it was due to what you heard someone else say on air I thought it had humor value and was hoping you would laugh along.

    KG4RUL, you can't get them all om, thanks. ;)

    I shall make contacts as time permits as their is a lady from church who is now in hospice and the wife has created a honey do list for the weekend.

    Hope to hear some of you on the bands.
