I just finished my Nescaf. Working great!

I enclosed my Nescaf filter in a round cat food can.  I'm using it with the can upside down for cosmetic reasons and once I got the filter board inside the can I used Goop glue to put a regular tin can lid on the bottom.  It is working great.  The filtering is fantastic and the sidetone is the best I've ever heard.  I feel like I'm using a new, high dollar rig.  I'm using it right now on my Omni D.  The Omni D has always been a great rig and is my main rig.  However, the addition of the Nescaf filter is so good that words do not do it justice.  I am one satisfied customer.  The audio is pu

Ozarkcon Door Prize

Hi Guys,

I want to thank the club for the door prizes that were presented at Ozarkcon last weekend from the New England QRP Club!  It was a great event.  I was one of the lucky recipients of a NEScaf Kit via a gift certificate at Ozarkcon but I can't seem to figure out how to redeem it.  I've looked on the club's Web page and sent W1CFI a message as instructed but I've had no luck yet.  I'm supposed to return the certificate but I can't figure out where to.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?
