Condolences to the family of well-known contester and DXpeditioner Anath Pai, VU2PAI, of Mangalore, India, who died on July 13. He was 47 and was reported to have suffered a heart attack while on a business trip.

Another Phone Fray this evening. I’ll be in the chair and hope to top the five contacts made last week though I will remain in S&P mode this time around too.

I’m booked for the 67th Annual W9DXCC DX Convention and Banquet that will take place in St. Charles, IL in September. I signed up for Contest University. This will be my first experience with it and I look forward to gaining skill and knowledge in this facet of the hobby.
