Just a couple notes to help out your effort.

1. everyone is low power in this one
2. you don't have to stay up all night, its only 12 hours total
3. you have to take 2 hours off in 1/2 hour or longer periods, plenty of
time to whiz and do anything else necessary.
4. no 160m, so the rustiest of wires isn't needed.
5. if you can't convert that 5 1/4" floppy they will take paper log.
