Hello Gang,
     I'm heading out on a canoe trip with my son's Boy Scout Troop. As
always, planning to take along the trusty NorCal 40 and do a little
operating along the way. So, I'm looking for contacts and something a
little more. I would like to be able to dump, via 40 meter cw, a daily
digest of events with the troop. I would like to send this not only to
QRP-L, but also to several of the troop's familys, keeping them informed as
to the fun we're having and their not! So I am looking for volenteers that
can pass along the "mail" when (and if) they hear me. Any takers? Below is
a short trip outline.
