Thanks again for going out to EL58 today, and for sticking around to
work that FO-29 pass at 1912 UTC. I spent my lunch break at a city
park near my office to work K5L, and got you early in the pass.
After moving off to work a couple of other stations, I went back to
listen to you work the last half of the pass. There may have been
crowds earlier, but there was no waiting to work you for most of
this pass, and stations from coast to coast got in the fun and worked
you. I heard N6UK and KG6FIY in California work you, as well as
KI1U in Connecticut, among the others that worked you.

Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your station on the water, and
for the confirmation to show up in the usual places. Getting EL58
covers me for what are the 3 wettest grids in the 488 continental
USA grids, after working ND9M/MM in CM93 and DM02 off southern
California in 2011. A good day...
