Re: Mini-DXpedition to Santa Catalina Island (DM03/IOTANA-066)

I returned a couple of days before the fire started and as of today, 
30+ cards have been mailed.  Aside from cards to Mexico, any that have
not gone out yet have at least been sent e-mail.  Aside from the usual
problems with weekend AO-51 passes (especially in the morning), things
went pretty smoothly, aside from a couple of minor equipment glitches.
The Pacific/Mountain zone folks seemed to be good about not crowding 
the transcontinental passes.  Pacific passes were lighter than i would
like but still productive, and alas, i missed hearing several West Coast
stations that i would have liked to have worked.  Local geography made
Hawaii passes impractical but at least i worked one Alaska station.

So after a week or so, if you haven't gotten a card or an e-mail from
me, please send me an e-mail with the particulars of the contact and i
will get a card out to you (assuming i have you in my log and/or voice
recordings), and as noted before, SASE not necessary.  

73's and good luck!

P.S.  Next unusual grid should be a couple of AO-27 passes from CM86
(Santa Cruz) on Saturday afternoon, 2 June 2007.  Possibly also CM79 
in late June, weather and schedules permitting.

P.P.S  Reminder: US postal rates have gone up again; they are now $0.69
for Canada and Mexico, $0.41 domestic.  If anyone who sends SASE wants
to trade some Canadian or Mexican stamps for US stamps, please let me 
know.  (If i get more requests than i can use, perhaps i'll facilitate
set up some kind of stamp exchange.)
