Amen and amen brother :-)
I could add another radio and be SO3R here and still be 5th from the bottom
in the contests. Low beams and wire antennas here.
If I had stacks and big antennas, with my hardware I have now, I'm sure I'd
be WAY up in the listings.
It probably doesn't matter as much when we have lots of spots as I won the
7th call area 10 meter contest in '98 with a rotary dipole at 30 feet.
Biggest score in my contesting life. Now with NO spots, antennas is where
it is at, not how many radios you have. 73
