Hi Don,

Yes, I am really surprised HPM isn't generating more activity.  The rule set is cool and it has a nice, multi day approach, like the 13 colonies event, which has tons of participation.  Just not enough publicity I guess?

Scott, firstly, thank you for diving in and getting the HPM software ready and available. Regret that decision yet? :-)

Secondly, it may only be my perception but I don't see much activity at all. My effort has been limited as well but when I do give it a go, I quickly work the three or four stations I hear on that band/mode and there is nobody left. Or I call CQ, get a few passersby--many of whom have no idea what this "HPM" and "/150" thing is all about and I have to coax a section and ARRL membership status out of them...especially on CW--and nothing more. Bands are bad, I agree. Maybe things will pick up over the weekend...when I will have even less time to play!
