We again are deeply indebted to David, K9DWR, who established the upload link and parsed the contest results. Thank You, David!

The new “All Amateurs Welcome” policy continues to enhance our overall experience. We had 2 non-members submit logs. A special welcome to Leandra, AF1R of Needham Heights, MA and Larry, KS3H of Daleville, VA.

We hope to see them as new members soon. If you see them on the air, please welcome them and thank them for their participation. Note that the Top Dawg Certificate and Rollo Dog Tag will be reserved exclusively for members.

Thanks to all who submitted logs. Stickers will be in the next mailing.

Time to start thinking about your participation in the next PODXS 070 Event. Check your long-wire or make a plan for a temporary stealth antenna if your HOA seems to be dead set against any wires outside. This is a great opportunity to put some 160m Q’s in the log for the Top Band Endorsement.
