Many thanks to Mark for making AO-16 available during the K9BSA Scout-O-Rama
demonstration yesterday, and MANY, MANY thanks for "advertising" that our
station was there on the 1950Z pass... we worked quite a number of
stations, thanks in large part to Mark's announcement on the bird. AO-7 and
VO-52 also provided many contacts earlier in the day.
OTOH, I was embarassed for the Scouts to witness the behavior on AO-27....
you know the kind I'm talking about.
