You can meet up with a whole bunch of buds and combine to form one of those multi-multi teams. Or you can go solo and operate from your shack in a variety of categories. You can even go and BE the DX, like some friends that I know - Bob N4BP and John K4BAI come to mind.
OR, you can take a portable rig, a hunk o' wire, a battery and a tuner and head out to the great outdoors to enjoy some sunshine and some plain ol' fashioned fun.
Any ideas who that might be, showing us the way?
