Re: Valentine Sprint – Heads Up ! One week away...

Paula K7PAX #1739

Heh – you used me for the example! I’m flattered! I will be on that day – last year was my 25th Wedding anniversary so I was celebrating. This year we are celebrating a day early to avoid the crowds, so I’ll be home to work the Sprint. Unfortunately, unlike past years when I had the hexbeam, I will only be able to work 40 meters, and with a quick stick dipole in a fixed position just 10 feet off the ground. I should be able to get some of you though – I will sure give it the old college try! I will try to be on as much as possible during operating hours to give out as many YL points as possible. Good luck everyone!


Shouldn’t the end time be Friday February 14 – 6:59 p.m. EST?
