It was a pleasure working some of you this week from the grids
mentioned in the subject line.  I also operated from DM83, EM14, and

It is very apparent that DM83 is much more rare than any other grids I
have activated in the region.  Several hams had asked that I make a
trip specifically to put DM83 on the air.  It is not very far out of
my business route so activating it was no trouble.  I will be doing it
again and possibly before the end of this year.

If you need any of the following grids confirmed, we can setup a schedule:
EM02-07 	EM11-14 	EM21-26
DM82-85 	DM92-96 	EL28-29

It may take a few months before I travel to your desired grid but rest
assured I will go there and we can attempt contact.  Some grids I
visit fairly regularly.

I've already started to input contacts into my electronic log and
upload them to Logbook of the World.  If you sent me a QSL card and
SASE I will respond early this week.  If you did not send me a card
but would like me to send you one, please email me the details of our
contact.  If you do not see our contact confirmed in LotW by the end
of this upcoming week, please contact me.

For those whom I worked on the DM85/DM95 grid line, I will have a
special card related to the nearby attraction on Interstate 40 (7/10
mile east of the grid line.)  No SASE req'd.  I will be sending them
out in a week or two.
