Updated First and Records List is on dxer.ca

I've just uploaded an updated Firsts and Records list to the Ultralight Files area of DXer.ca. Records as of mid-May 2008. Only one change in the past month: Allen Willie of Newfoundland was the first to hear Jordan as a TA on an Ultralight: Radio Jordan on 1494 kHz. *** Congratulations, Allen!!!*****

Ultralighters in the Pacific Northwest of the US and Canada are getting geared up for their DownUnder season, so more Firsts and Records may be established on that front in the next couple of months. Stand By!

I was impressed that 145 DXers had downloaded the April 18 update of the Firsts and Records! Obviously, there are a lot more folks interested in Ultralighting than there are members on this group. Glad to hear it.  I guess the other option would be that one DXer had the mad desire to wall paper his shack with multiple copies of our Firsts and Records List :>)

Linda and I are headed out for the Northwest at dawn on Friday, after I spend most of tomorrow down in Oklahoma City. We'll be on the road about a week, spending some time in the interior of Wyoming and hitting Yellowstone National Park.  The week or so before Memorial Day, they plow the roads and open the lodge for crew training and accept the few guests that arrive.  The animals are mostly down in the low country, since the high country is still snow-packed.  There are only a few guests in the park and its sort of magical. Buffalo, grizzlies and elk don't QSL regularly, but they sure are fun to watch!

Even the Old Faithful Lodge has Wi-Fi, so I'll be checking into my other addiction from time to time.
