FW: Attention Gridsquare Hunters!

Steve Diggs - W4EPI asked me to forward this to the list.  He was unable to
get it posted before he escaped on vacation!

Have fun, now if I can get antennas on my tower and tuned up and
directed.... Maybe I can work him too! :->

Would you please forward this to the AMSAT-BB list? I sent it this morning,
but it has not been distributed.
