Hi Joe,

I was on for both of my skeds on December 21. Equipment on my end
appeared to be working well!?

I did not hear DL7UDA at all.  I heard my echoes very well and also
heard K9SLQ calling for him right after my sked.
K9SLQ sounded much louder than usually!

I think I did hear G4RGK however I just could not pull out the calls. I
sent "T" and continued to try him until I ran out of Sked time. I would
like to try him again.

Thanks again Joe, I am always happy to try to work new stations. I am at
85 initials at this time.

I am going to try to make the net on Sunday. Saturday I may be doing
some last minute Christmas shopping, if not I'll be on the net.  I
should be on the moon on 70cm. some this weekend working random.

Happy Holidays to all!
