Hi Gordon,

Great to have you with us, and of course we can always welcome
another ULR
enthusiast here in salt-water-enhanced western Washington!

About a week ago we had a get-together at the Puyallup fairgrounds
after an
electronics flea market (Chuck Hutton, Guy Atkins and myself), and
had a
great time talking about DX afterwards at the Old Country Buffet on
Hill. Chuck and Guy are primarily Perseus-SDR enthusiasts, but both
of them
also do pack along ULR's during their frequent DXpeditions to ocean
My own interest is in ULR transoceanic DXing using homebrew PVC box
including some monster models up to the 9' side size (several MP's
which are posted in our Ultralightdx sound file section).

It sounds great to have another local get-together, but since almost
all of
us are busy during weekdays (and with children), sometimes it's a
challenge to match up free time.

We certainly don't need much of an excuse to schedule another luncheon
the Old Country Buffet, Gordon, so if you (or any other DXers) are
able to
make it down to Puyallup, please let us know in advance, and we'll
you to a great lunch. If you have some spare time this spring or
summer, you
might also consider an ocean beach run to chase DU's (Australia/ NZ
stations) at a Pacific beach location like Grayland, during which the
local Puget
Sound gang occasionally mixes with our Victoria, BC DXing brothers.
chances of hearing nice transoceanic DX go up dramatically if you can
away from the Puget Sound QRM :-)

73, Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA)
I would need a month or so in advance to schedule a trip to Puyallup as
I can't drive, but I certainly would like to do something with fellow
ULR folk in May or June.
