Comments from the organizer:

Participation was down this time from the February 2001 running of the event. I hope that can be attributed to summer vacations, rather than lack of interest.

Rovers were the name of the game this time around. The re-working of the rover rules seems to have made a big difference; either that, or Andy's rover operation from the first FM Challenge inspired a lot of people to try it, too. "Rover" is probably the most challenging category to enter. Unfortunately, only two of the many rovers actually submitted their logs.

I re-worked the entry classes before this edition of the contest. Unfortunately, the two categories that people asked for the most had ZERO entries. I may look into re-defining the categories YET AGAIN if nobody will enter the categories as they now stand. I know of one person that would have taken the HT category, had they simply sent in their log. It's ALWAYS a good idea to send in your log, because you just never know what may happen.

The next running of the TCARCC 2 Meter FM Challenge will be sometime in mid to late September, 2001. Thanks to all who participated.
