Thanks for all the QSOs on two passes of FO-29. I think it was 18 QSOs
that I made, but will have to confirm from the recording. If you
missed me, don't worry. I'll go back soon. It's only a 15 minute walk
from my apartment.
I also plan to go to some of the other NPOTAs. There are several
within walking distance. I'll bring an AlexLoop next time for HF
