Have arrived at home base now, so can get back to somewhat normal operations. I would like to thank all the ops who I worked while on this 16 day cross country adventure while operating in the following grids: DM26, DM65, EM25, EM45, EM63, EM73, EM70, EL79, EM40, EM00 and last but not least DM91. I have a stack of envelopes on my desk now to answer with return cards for your efforts, and also I think I have the ones that came via eQSL.cc all confirmed as of yesterday. I think the 2 prized Grids were EL79 and EM00. So, please bear with me and I will get the cards out ASAP. Again, thanks to all for giving me some challenges using the Yaesu FT60 HT and the ELK L.P. yagi, handheld. Funny though.... in all the RV parks I was in and operating, not one person came up to me and asked me what I was doing !! They all looked at me funny though. Oh, acouple of highlights of the trip was first the visual observation of the ISS on a pass over the Mississippi River which was something, as alot of the RV'ers were wondering what we were looking at, until I explained it, and then they all got a gander of it. Secondly, was finally meeing Glenn AA5PK eyeball to eyeball. Thanks for being a host and for letting me give a demo at the San Angelo Radio Club meeting of satellite ops. Was nice of AO-51 to be overhead at that time.
See everyone back on normal shift now at home..
