Which also means the 13 colonies Special Event activity is also coming to and end.  NI8Z accomplished another “clean sweep” obtaining all 13 colonies plus the 2 bonus stations.  The race was on with the president who last year finished ahead of me. This year I had all on July 1st. Roger claims an excuse …. He had to work.  However, he and W8MET also had clean sweeps.

I’m now of the mind to purchase a Delta Loop antenna from DX engineering. It has 30 meters as well as all bands up to 6 meters.  After I install it I will give a report on its efficacy.  The bands will be quiet for awhile, the next biggie will be the Ohio QSO party in August.

I learned of another digital mode being introduced from one of my DXer friend at NODXA. Its called FT8 7 or something like that.  I’ve had no chance to check out. Thats for another newsletter.

QSL cards have been designed and ordered for our club callsign —>N8ARG.

BTW, that is a fun call to send during Field Day.
