I would like to thank everyone who called.  Band conditions fluctuated dramatically with very good conditions during some activations, to very poor during others.

Also many thanks to those that took the time to spot me, either on parksnpeaks, the DX cluster, Facebook.  It certainly helps fill up the log.

I will post some more info & photos for each of the activations in the coming weeks.
