Hi Joe,

after a closer view to my EME antennea I saw that some open feed lines are 
brocken. I have to replace a rotor mast clamp as well. So I will be not on for 
feb. After the big storms house is repaired the broken trees are cutted and 
moved to the fire place and weather is like in spring now.
I hope to be back for march Skedweekend.

About ARRL contest, I agree with most of the guys, that 2 weekends will help to 
have more qso for the smaller stations. Not every station has good condx at one 
weekend; farady, storm, brocken cables, burned preamp or family affairs will 
keep someone out of buiseness. A secound weekend will give them a secound try. 
The big guns work about 80% in the first leg, but smaller stations make less 
qsos in the first leg. To give the smaller stations more fun it is nesseccary 
that we have a contest with 2 weekends.
I believe that we should move the dates earlier, to have better weather (95% are 
on the nothern hemisphere, sorry Doug). In nov. we are to close to wínter, storm 
and snow will keep every year some guys qrt.
I vote for sept. and oct. with high nothern decl.
