Tomorrow: IARU contest

Tomorrow I will be out of town for the IARU contest. It's an international ham radio contest. We'll see how many foreign contacts we can make with voice and cw from 8 am tomorrow till 8 am on Sunday. This time, we'll be meeting at somebody's shack (their radio room) so I won't have to build things like I did at Field Day. We will be using some really sophisticated equipment and big antennas, and so I am very excited. I saw pictures of this amateur station and it is just...woah...amazing. I can't wait to see it for myself :3
It should be a lot of fun and it will definitely be a needed change of pace after this week. I think 60 hours of work a week is bad for the health without such diversions :p

IARU here we come!
