You could give us a run, if you had that week off.  Isn't July in
Washington a good time of year to be away from the office?  ;-)
You'd have chances to work Europeans and even South Americans as
W1AW/3.  Geography is in your favor to get those DX stations,
compared to being here in Arizona.

It was mentioned in a private e-mail that Tennessee and New Mexico
are active on HF as W1AW/4 and W1AW/5, respectively, today.  My
comment earlier today related to *satellite* activity from those
states, and I apologize for not being more specific.  I'm hoping
that maybe there will be some W1AW/4 activity from Tennessee this
week, given the number of satellite operators in that state -
especially a certain grid in the southwest part of that state. :-)

Thanks again for working me as W1AW/7 and WD9EWK in the past week.
I now have worked one station on the satellites in DC from my home
grid, after over 8 years of never hearing one.
