Several pithy observations and comments regarding the ARRL DX Contest which I was following along quite nicely until he penned:
Oh yeah, and the plaque is far and away the nicest in

Apparently Dick has not been exposed to those Plaques of Art awarded to TopBand Stalwarts for top performances thrashed out during The Stew Perry TopBand DX Challenge sponsored by the participants and overseen by The Boring Amateur Radio Club. These metal and fiber masterpieces have won the coveted "Plaq-ee" award for top plaque in the world the past 5 years in a row, as voted on, typically in secret, shortly after the Contester's dinner in Dayton annually.
Please don't let this small inaccuracy of Dick's affect your opinion of what he wrote, nor assume this is an derogatory statement concerning plaques awarded for performances in other contests.
