This was the second year that K5TR operated in the ARRL June VHF QSO Party in the multi-limited class. We had an unbelievably great six meter opening on Saturday, and a really terribly day on six meters on Sunday.

|John Dvoracek KE5C came to operate with us on Sunday afternoon. He also brought over to George a rack-mount power supply. Here, he is just confirming that the supply survived the trip from Temple.|
|John KE5C, on six meters, and Ken WM5R on two meters and up, late Sunday afternoon. This was a really boring part of the contest until ND2X/R showed up and gave everyone around a flurry of new QSOs and grids on as many as four bands.|
|A view of the station set up for that weekend. On six meters, we were using a Kenwood TS-690. On 222 and 432, we used a Kenwood TS-850SAT with Downeast Microwave transverters and a custom IF switch (at the upper left-hand corner of the right computer monitor.) On two meters, we used another Kenwood TS-850SAT and a Downeast Microwave transverter.|
