Subject: Sounds like fun to me

Perhaps unlike "real" ham radio - as propogation will play no part - but still a fun event to meet new people on CQ100.

I will be participating.

I'm getting pretty excited for this. It will be my first time contesting.
Getting ready to do my shack shakedown cruise to make sure I'm prepared for the event. Hope we have a lot of participants!

Subject: Where is Trippy?

I can't find Trippy. :( I've emailed a couple times wanting to know the results of the Sweepstakes contest and haven't heard back. Trippy, if you're there, please respond, or anyone else pipe in if you know where he's been. I'm actually kinda worried now that something has happened. Thanks!!
