Hi Everyone,

Thought I would start my attempt at the Robert Ross Challenge of logging
300 stations in 30 days last evening . Thus far I don't have a great
number added to the list, as I thought I would leave the commonly
heards for later on.
Atta Boy Allen..you're doing me Proud!! HAHHAHA.....



So I'm up for the challenge and looking forward to it.

OK Allen....Good luck, and see if you can't Smash the 300 Mark!! I think

Hi Everyone,
 
Thought I would start my attempt at the Robert Ross Challenge of logging 300 stations in 30 days last evening . Thus far I  don't have a great number added to the list,  as I thought I would leave the commonly heards  for later on.
 
Last evening I concentrated more on logging some of the stations I've heard before but stations that don't come in that often, only now and then,  in case I don't have another shot at them  again within the 30 days.
 
I did manage to log 2 new domestics , one which I will be submitting for  a possible new graveyard frequency  distance record which will  outdistance my previous record by 500 miles or so.
 
So I'm up for the challenge and looking forward to it.
