Yes, I agree. And add single op/single band.
Single op/high band class of several yrs ago was good encouragement for ones
who has only trinbander like me.
Anyway, I like WAE 'test with thrilling QTC traffics !

Derrick (Derek, Derrik, etc.) presents a perfect example of why I would rather
try to move a good multiplier NOW, even if I think he/she will be on the other
band(s) later. You never know if he/she is going to be there later.
Really now, is the QRM level that high in the NAQP that you couldn't find a new
run frequency on the run band quickly after moving to other bands ? If so, I
suggest you get a new set of 500 Hz filters.
On a more sarcastic note, it was really gratifying to note in the NAQP how
quickly K3ZO's "don't ask first" philosophy has spread within the contest
community. Really appreciated the "CQ NA" dumped on top of my 10 meter QSO's,
who were, no doubt, within the skip zone of the offender.

My main computer (a 486DX66 VL bus) is running the pre-final beta version of
Windows 95 and I can tell you that it IS more stable than 3.1 and you can
run CT in it's window...but I still dont. I use it as a dedicated "DOS"
program just to be safe. I will say that NA seems to have problems with Windows
95: it crashed immediately when I ran it in a window. But it ran fine from a
dedicated pseudo-DOS shell. I ran NA networked between this 486 and a 386
running MSDOS 6.2 during NAQP CW and they worked fine. 73, Tyler KF3P
