    I'll be a Mobile HF station on the air that weekend. Look forward to it. The more events the better these days!

    Scoring and logging are different than with a Field Day, it would appear.

    Winter AND Summer Field Day I might add, but any excuse to get out in the field is a good one. If you think you're out in the field, watch Julian OH8STN.

    Amen to that!
    Until there's more clarification as to what wares have been anonymously purchased at prevailing price, or discounted/donated quid pro quo, then I'll pass, thanks.
