Starting my GridMaster after a long hiatus from the birds

It’s been a while since I’ve been active on the birds. So long that when I started adding my grids to the Grid Master map many of them are from paper cards! I mean, who does that now days?! Going through those cards, though, brought back a lot of good memories from the past including cobbling together gear to work AO-16 back when it spontaneously came back to life and standing in the parking lot at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium at East Carolina University waiting for AO-51, SO-50, and AO-27 to come by. Ahh, yes, the good times.

Here we are at the beginning of December, 2020, at 8.81% of the grids filled. We’ll see what it looks like in a month.
