​Howdy 070 members,

Hopefully no distractions today​, and finally over this cold (for a while anyway).

I am parked on 18.100 KHz until 17:00 or perhaps a little later.

Would very much like to get some new states in the log, but I'll be happy to contact anyone who hear my little signal.

Matt,

The DX endorsements look like a good match. Japan and Brazil not to difficult from the Left coast, and Ukraine & Brazil not to difficult from the East coast.

Keep up the good work!

Many Ukrainians don't like that. Regardless of the political situation, we have to find a way to deal with it.  We as individuals may not agree with it, but the most palatable approach for our purpose as a radio club having fun is to use the ARRL's decision as a general guideline on the matter.

No station claiming "Crimea" as an entity will count towards the award.

Any questions, errors, omissions, or issues, please let me know.
