Hoping you are having a good time up here.  We are departing for 
Anchorage in an hour in order get there in time for the KL6M EME 
Tour.  Will be looking forward to seeing you there.  My presentation 
is the same time as yours on Saturday, but I will attend your's on 
Sunday.  This is the only hamfest scheduled for 2008 in Alaska so it 
should draw hams from all parts of the state.

Mobile with my FT-817 on 147.27 (103.5Hz) repeater.
