Thanks for the update, Roger.  Kudos to Dana and Nick for their original
N1MM UDC efforts!

A couple final reminders on the "222 MHz and Up Distance Contest":

- Software - ARRL log checking will calculate ultimate distances, and final
scores. Log all contacts (even duplicates). Participants will just need
software that will accept 6-digit grid locators and output same in their
Cabrillo logs.

- The log submission deadline is 14 days after the event (submit by 1800
UTC August 20, 2017).

- Submissions are online via web app only (there is no Robot email address
or paper logs by mail option in this event). The web app address is


http://contest-log-submission.arrl.org/

Wishing everyone good luck in the event!

73,
