Even under the best of conditions (which we don't have right now), those of
us on the West Coast probably won't be able to hear the W3R Collins 300-G on
160M.  I recently acquired a 300-G and will have it on the air for the Heavy
Metal Rally from my QTH in Lacey, WA, just south of Seattle.  I will be on
either 1945 or 1925KC starting around 7:00-7:30PM PST this evening,
depending on conditions.  I plan on taking a late afternoon nap and will
stay up as long as there are people to talk with.  I hope to meet a lot of
you there.

73,
Clay  W7CE
