I've done that before too, down in 5 land.
Thought about it and what do ya know! A fire dept truck was cruising around. I waved at them, and 2 guys came to help.
Go look in the parking lot of a grocery store for a fire truck...or at Starbucks for a policeman to pull on the string?
Watch out for snakes! They're different back there. Copperheads, etc.

Good idea Charlie, will be nice and clear and no confusion from those who don't know what the contest is.

Look for you there!

Shot a line over my 140' tree but can't find the projectile in the jungle (even though it has fishing line on it) - need a second person to pull the line so I can hear it move as I wander around back there...

Perfect shot, right over the crown - sad I won't be able to use it for the contest :b

Greetings all,

I've installed MiXW on a "new" PC, calibrated the soundcard, worked a guy in Germany, updated my icons so I know who y'all are, raised the Zepp up a little, reinstalled the homebrew 10/12/15 meter vertical - all that's left is to load the TDW macros.

And go get some Tanqueray...

Since it's just "us" in this contest, I was thinking of hanging out on 7.070 and not QRMing 7.035 when not looking for DX members on 40.

See all y'all soon. Vy 73,

Charlie, K8IJ
