Hi Chris,

It was a blast.... Reading the results amazed me too. The ingenuity and persistence of everyone! I was reminded of just how difficult it was sometimes as a novice to actually get on the air and make contacts!

It was great fun and a good time was had by all - or at least a nostalgic experience for sure!!

Best regards - Brian Carling
