You can tell "contest season" is over, when the CONTEST reflector degenerates
to seemingly endless and "beat the dead horse 100 times" discussions on SSTV
& exploding tower bases. We need big contests every weekend so the boys can
compare scores, notes & strategies, not let their minds wander about.
If we have a major wall to wall contest every weekend with our big signals
and relentless CQ'ing, then we can succeed in running everyone else off the
bands; hence, we will have the bands to ourselves and won't have any other
"non-contest" groups to bash.

I found some nylon string at Walmart once in the fishing dept. that
was coated with a waxy substance and was black in color. Same size as
the regular white string you see all of the time. It was great for
supporting wire antennas in the back yard because you couldn't see it
even if you were looking for it, and after 5 years of swaying pine
trees it never broke. The waxy coating kept the water from destroying
Unfortunately I can't find it now. Walmart, KMart, and Bass Pro Shop
Superstore didn't have it. Anyone have any leads?
