So far I have missed working Randy zf2si, while I heard him on 18 mhz
My mobile antenna will not resonate there

Then last night I logged into DX cluster via Telenet
and saw I just missed him on 40m cw

Tomorrow Thursday 14th I will be at K8KI's qth and hope to find Randy
before he QRT's to head home the next day.

I am staying busy here in Georgia
between shooting Pools for Blue Haven Pools of Georgia

And pre-hamfest fun
including buying another Ft-1000MP which will be added to the SO2R shack and the IC 756 pro 2 will be re relegated to the deployment /FD kit and pulled out for sweepstakes spotting station in Noivember

We are off to Columbus Ga today with one night there and then into Huntsville for the real Ham Radio fun of the trip

Thursday is a lite day playing in Bob K8Ki's shack, Friday is helping vendors and flea marketeers set-up
and then Friday even we attend the first annual contesters hospitality suite sponsored by the Alabama Contest Group

Saturday during the day is the main event with the Hamfest, a couple of great seminars (speakers) and then that night is the famed DX Dinner

Sunday more hamfest with last minutes deals and then head home
Monday we should be home to unpack my new to me FT-1000MP which will be awaiting me

I am excited that a few good contesters got together in our state and have formed the LCC
Louisiana Contest Club

I have already signed up, just need to mail them my $20

I am thrilled to see a contest club in our state and hope that it grows to become one of the best

It will if we like minded DXer's and contesters endorse it, please consider joining this small group and helping it grow in to a larger healthy organization that us Louisianians can be proud of.

Founding members are recognized contesters and therefore our state is off to a good start
