How about a contest for real worl ops:

Tribanders at 50 feet
NO amps allowed
Wire sloper or dipole on 40 & 80 (one for each band allowed)
and minimum S7 noise on all bands.

We might find some REAL operators !!!

In the recent "debate" (?), someone said:

"I believe all S/O and M/S entries throughout Europe use around
1-3 KW and the organisers know this....."

Oh  yeah?  Well,  NOT SO HERE, I run a 16 year-old  SB220  complete  with
original tubes  and keep to the (U.K.) license rules on power, i.e.   400
Watts peak output from running it in CW mode, if I ran anymore then I
guess  the amp  would  have  blown years ago, in stead  I  run  it  at  a
conservative level and stay within the rules.

One of the European contesters visited me last year and asked "Where`s the
Amp  - you know, the REAL amp?" He was surprised to see nothing more  than
the ole `220.
