Although Ed Newbury’s loggings are identified as being made in Nebraska, he advises me that many of them were made at the Winter SW Festival in Kulpsville, PA while he was there. Also, the loggings from Wells Perkins in Scotch Plains, NJ were received here to late to be included in the credits by Fred Kohlbrenner. Wells lists his equipment as SW100S, 2010, HF1000, SP 600, HQ150, and long wire antennas. Finally, these last minute loggings from Jack Jones in Jackson, MS:
