Anything that boosts 30m activity without turning it cutthroat is for me.

Sure, why not. But this isn't a contest, it's an operating opportunity,
an event. [Rationalize module ON]

Is it safe to drive and log??? ;-)

Boy, I wish I lived closer to more section borders, or in So. Cal. Maybe
this would be better using the V/UHF contests "rover" category only it
applies to sections, not grids.

I think that should be a sponsored award. Hmm, have to think about that
one a bit. We are honorable people, right? ;^) In fact, it isn't hard to
come up with all kinds of different awards (this is not a contest) for this

Well, here is my e-mail. I love the idea, and I hope that we can do this
without getting flamed over contests on 30m. The long term nature of the
event ought to take care of that problem.

Just to add to this thread...
I think that the HB requirement should only be a bonus. I would much rather
HB my xmtr and use my ICOM R71 rcvr, or even fire up the MFJ, but however
the rules, errr operating guidelines go, I will do it that way. I like the
idea of this way too much. (Repeat quietly to yourself...This is not a
contest, this is not a ...)

72 es CU on 30m, but I won't say exactly when, except to say that I work
days, and [...stop this before it gets out of hand...]
