Thanks for all of the replies on my query. It will take a few
days but I'll get back to those that had ?'s.

Was there a summary of WAE scores posted? If there was,
I must have accidentally deleted it.... would someone be
so kind as to mail it to me? Thanks.

A lightning strike vaporized my Beverage "hub" (relays, transformers) last
Friday, but, thanks to PolyPhaser, everything in shack is just fine.
PolyPhaser: worth the $$$.

Subject: A3S Repair Results
Thanks, contesters...good info helped a lot.
Source of the problem was a bad PL259-to-pigtail cable I used to connect
to the main run of coax. Then I replaced it with a new bad one I made
with a short in it. (I always check with an ohmmeter, but I was in a
hurry this time...) Talk about confusion!
The most useful check was QHS' advice to put an analyzer on the driven
element, and run your hand along the antenna, watching the SWR. A good
trap isolates well and the effect of your hand drops dramatically outside
the trap on the appropriate band.
By the way, I could only use the SWR analyzer at ground level because of
the high BC RF level up on the tower playing hob with the RF detectors in
the unit. It made for about a half-dozen extra trips up and down the tower.
Now back on the air with two high-band antennas for those JA/US and EU/SA

Subject: Contest Free Zones
From: wb2jsj@ka2tcq (Mitch)
Kurt Pauer has mentioned that the CAC is discussing the idea of
Contest Free Zones on the bands.
I'm am NOT in favor of such restrictions UNLESS we get a reciprocal
Rag-Chew Free and DX-Free Zones as well. Since the possibility of this
happening is slightly less than nil, our best bet is to not have Zones!
I am in favor of standards we (contesters) might all follow to give
non-contesters a break. As a general rule, I avoid the top 25 KHz of
the bands. I would much rather do this out of consideration vs. having
a rule dictated.
Tom, K1KI had a good idea about expanding some of the phone bands.
During major contests, 80, 40 and 20 meters completely fill up and
there is no room for any SSB operation of any type sometimes.
