Stan (W9SMR/9) and I (KC9UR) are looking forward to our 6th
year-in-a-row "Pontoon Portable" APE from Clear Lake in northeast
Indiana. Unfortunately I'm in the midst of home buying/selling/moving,
and the uncertainties of that are keeping the date TBD. We have
really enjoyed our past 5 APEs, and would strongly encourage those who have
never tried it to give it a go (hunting APEs is addictive). It's great
fun to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. Portable operation
is fun, exciting (watch out for those Indiana thunderstorms), and a great
learning experience. We are looking forward to working many of you again
I again want to invite ANY 070 member to beautiful Cape May
NJ to activate
