CORRECTION: Valentine Sprint – Heads Up - One week away...

stan W9SMR

The Required Valentine Sprint Exchange is simply:

"OM" or "YL" and your State/Province/Country (SPC).

Examples: "W4KRN YL VA" and "K5SP OM TX"

You may of course use the friendlier exchange and include your name if you desire.

Thank you, Tom, KD6TR for pointing this out.
