Just a small note to say a BIG thanks for all the contacts while I was on vacation (working portable) in Kentucky for Christmas.  I had a good time and the bad weather held off until Christmas - we had a white Christmas on top of it all.
I was able to work 5 passes on AO-27 and SO-50 combined ( four on 12/23 and 1 on 12/25 ) and successfully made 27 contacts.  The pass on 12/25 was straight TH-F6A HT and its Diamond SRH77CA antenna.  The others were worked via my "replica" arrow and mobile rigs in my truck.
Thanks to all operators that QSOd with me...I had a blast, as usual!
I have started sending out QSL cards for these contacts, so, IF you need EM67, please email me the details of our QSO so that I can be sure not to leave you out.  Already have N8RO, AA5CK, and KE4KOL on my list.
Finally, I did NOT make it to EM68 this trip, but will be in EM67 several times throughout the year, so I anticipate getting to EM68 at some point.  I will provide details when the time comes.
See you on the birds.
