For one glorious year I had bragging rights to the Dakota Division record for SS
LP Phone.  The next year a better operator, N0BSH (now K9NW), at a better
station, N0AT, took it away from me by a huge margin.  My goal is to overcome
whatever advantages N0BSH @ N0AT had and reclaim those bragging rights.  If the
contest sponsor mucks around and puts hired guns or SO2R in a different
category, then I won't have that opportunity.  As they say in football, "let the
players play".  Some contests have already been sliced and diced into too many
assinine categories --- we don't need more "equality".  Doubters are invited to
read Kurt Vonnegut's short story, "Harrison Bergeron", paying particular
attention to the character Diana Moon Glompers, the Handicapper General.
