    It's time to work that special event station in Finland. When is the band
    open to the State EOC for the disaster? The answer to both and more is
    found at VOACAP. There you will find a site that lets one select the
    place on the Planet you are and where you want to reach. Select your
    antenna, mode, and power levels at both ends of the path. How far will 100 watts and a wire go? Using the current Sun Spot Numbers, the resource gives
    you path projects, long path and short path included. It's a tool for
    contests, worked all states, and more.

    WAY down.Nets such as the Alabama, SHARC, SCARS, Ohio, and Oklahoma groups
    have fostered a way forward for Sunflower. Are you enjoying these nets now that the cost has gone down?Comments below are welcome. 73
