Comments from the organizer:

The contest was great fun! It was one of the coldest nights of the season but my car was plenty warm, assisted by the 100 watt amp I used this time. I heard many positive comments about the contest. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.

Once again, we saw a few newcomers to the event. More is always better, so let's all think of ways to better promote this event.

We will be having more of these during the year. I am thinking one in each season (about every three months). We will probably do them during daylight hours, too, for the benefit of the Rovers so they won't have to drive in the dark.

Also, a couple of the rules might need clarification so I will be looking into that also.

If anyone has any suggestions for future contests (possible improvements, etc.) please let me know.


Zack Widup, W9SZ
