operations: "in the best case, we may get on the air on November 4,  but  it
could easily be November 10 or later". George and Tomi  will  have  supplies
for a 20-day operation. The TX3A license is valid for 15 days only, so  they
may operate some of the time using  their  own  callsigns.  They  intend  to
remain on the island  to  participate  in  the  CQWW  CW  contest.  Bookmark
