Hi Clint!

Thanks for the shout.  I am parked next to a monument
marking the 50th parallel along the waterfront in
Campbell River, British Columbia, now.  GPS says the
line is south of the monument, oh well.  Only 16C/61F
here, much better than back in Phoenix at the
moment.  And a full week to go up here.

I did not hear the first 30 to 45 seconds of the 7-
minute repeater time, being so far north.  Still fun
to get through.  Thanks to portable gear and no problems
at Phoenix airport security and Canada Customs, I have my
normal (portable) station with me. :-)

73 and happy July 4 to those south of me in the States!
