After 26 hours of traveling (door-to-door, my house to the hotel, including about 18 in the air), I'm going to get some rest now before getting up for work in the morning. I hope to be at the station tomorrow night local time. If I've done the math right, that will be about 1000z.

I hope to be able to post on the reflector when I'm actually there.

TDW Bonus Station request

Bob N3PPH <rsheskin@...>
 

I hope everyone had a good time with 31 Flavors and have managed to get your
entries to Harvey, only a little better than a week left if you have been
procrastinating.
A couple of weeks ago I asked for people to check their calendars and see
if you wanted to be a bonus station for this year's TDW May 25 - May 27. As
I previously stated, Chuck N2EOC will be the East Coast Bonus station as
last year's Top Dog. I do need stations from the Midwest, Western North
America and a DX station to be bonus stations. I do want to give this
opportunity to a new group of stations so if you have previously been a
bonus please step aside and let a new station join the chaos of being a
wanted station. I would like the Bonus Station to be committed to working
the full contest so all have an equal chance to contact you. Please make
sure you can spend a good deal of time on the air for the contest!
Please send me the following:
Your Call:
Your 070 #:
A contact email:
The Bonus position you want to fill:
Send this to podxs070@comcast.net by April 25. This will give ample time to
notify all of the Bonus Stations.
Good luck and in advance I want to thank all applicants.

73,
Bob N3PPH

Re: W3HF/KH2

 

Ted,
I dont care if it's poisonous or not...it's a snake. If it bites me, I'm a goner. I can't remember NOT being afraid of snakes.
Well, back to ham topics.
Good luck Steve.

They can get quite large, but I think these were only a couple of feet
long, adolescences I think. They do have a voracious appetite for
birds, which is why there are very few birds on the island and why it is
imperative they do not leave the island of Guam.

Brown Tree Snakes!! Boy that brings back a lot of memories!!! As a
primary aircrew member on a USAF transport aircraft, we were always
vigilant over these suckers. One day while doing the exterior and
interior walk around just prior to take off, I had two of those suckers
stick their head out of a cargo pallet in the aircraft. Needles to say,
we could not leave for our destination, Kwajilean.

To make a very long story short, the cargo was downloaded, the snake
dogs were deployed, but found nothing in any of the cargo pallets, but
when let loose inside the C-130, they went ballistic.

Took the maintenance folks almost 36 hours to disassemble the floor of
the aircraft to find not 2, but 5 of those suckers.

Needles to say, my trip to Kwajilean to operate the Ham station there
got sidelined.

Barring any unforeseen delays, I plan to be on Guam for about 11 days beginning next Wednesday, 18 April. This is a business trip, but I plan to get some PSK31 time at the WH2DX club station. (That's where I operated for three days last September.)

I can't predict operating times--it will depend on my work schedule. But if the configuration is similar to last September's, I may be able to post emails when I'm at the station.
