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
