Hay All ,

Nice posting and interesting to learn about the availability of an AWARD for working the HQ station.
But.....then I suppose that they will not enter the contest but send the logs in as a checklog .(ETHICS)
Do I remember the comments on some similar posting on this same reflector about making pre contest publicity.
( Was a german group working with banners...guess who commented then )
This is unfair to the other competitors as they will maybe stick to a more conservative way of "playing" according to the unspoken rule...

Think next weekend will be the one with all the contradictions bundled in a small 24 hr happening .

Who makes the definition of an ALL STAR team ???
I guess the BIG GUNS ....

Now I will take my umbrella and wait for the shower to pass me by ..

Enjoy it anyway,

Good and fair contesting to You all ,

73 - Jim

It is no use sending me a QSL via the buro because the VK8 buro is dead! You may send me QSLs via my other call - VK4IV - and the VK4 buro! TKS.

Thanks for the many QSOs during IARU2000 - 4 bands!!
