Thant is great info.

K4AMG will be GOTA station at the W4CAR FD.  Since we have SSB CW we will 
not operate SO 50 because of the congestion.

We tried FD last year but had to many program and other failures with an old 
HR Deluxe.

Hope to work you all from Deep Creek Lock Park on the Waterway in 
Chesapeake, VA FM 16.
