Subj:    10 GHz
Date:   5/7/00 8:14:44 AM Eastern Daylight Time
From:   mcintire@flash.net (Greg McIntire)

Hi Joe-I've been working 6 day/60 hour weeks for over a months so activity 
has been limited.  Have not heard of any new 10 GHz stations and 
looking.  Last new one was last October before the lighting strike.  Most 
equipment repaired since February or so.   Still waiting on QSLs from 
SM4DHN (1997QSO!), I4CHY, DL2LAC, and S57UUU.

73,

Greg, AA5C
