Thank you John.

This was my third CQ160 from the Lighthouse, NE6PG and I also did an August 
Lighthouse Weekend activation in 2008. 
It is a lot of fun once it is all set up, but it does take quite a bit of work. 
 Just the teardown took me 5 hours.

I was fortunate to talk to some great people, and they let me set up.  I was 
later invited back.

That would be great!  Right now it looks like Mondays are the best day for me 
to come by, possibly next Monday if you have the time. Maybe we can also 
discuss some ideas.
