Ladies and Gentlemen, we, as a club have just completed one of
the most memorable Three Day Weekend contests in all the years I
have been a member.
Just a few short months ago, the future did not bode well for
this great organization of PSK operators remaining in existence.
There has been, and continues to be a tremendous amount of effort
by the volunteers to ensure the club continues, and that all the
components return to as normal as possible.
This weekend proved to me, beyond a doubt, that the members of this club are some of the finest operators in the world. All weekend long, there were signals all over the bands, and the number of members (and non-members) participating was astonishing. Through the efforts and patience of all, we can and WILL ensure the 070 Club survives well into the future.
While there are many people that I would like to thank, and many
of you know who you are, I want to take this opportunity to thank
some special people, that put hours in the chair, to ensure that
everyone had equal chances to reel in those Bonus points. This
years group that W3HF, N7WE, K5SP, K9DWR and W9SMR decided would
provide the most coverage from coast to coast performed in an
outstanding manner. It seemed that no matter what band I was on,
or what time of day, I could find these guys handing out Bonus
Points as fast as possible. If I could not see their signals, I
could see others making contacts with them. So, a special WELL
DONE to the following:
And after this weekend, I don't want to hear Barry complaining that no one ever wants to work him. Hi HI.
Again thanks to all for a great TDW.
