Footnotes: I contributed to K5QE's WAS when I gave him New Mexico using MSK144 and a 25W DEMI transverter on loan from Bill W7QQ. The path was around 800 miles and only took 20 minutes. I have also operated the K5QE contest station (east Texas in EM31) a few times and there is impressive hardware for 6--432 including a cross-polarized EME array for 222.

Good luck to all the contesters this weekend!
