Hi,

I personally emailed Chuck Ripple last December about our planned outing 
since I had heard of his going to the Outer Banks in the winter for MF 
DXing.  Never heard back from him.  From what I gather they do some 
really good DXing from there.  I don't know if they go down to the beach 
like we did or do something else.

Frank
