I would not say this has put more points in my log, but it certainly
helped with station design, operating technique and overall enjoyment
of radiosport - that is to read the newsletters of various contest
clubs, even the back issues (when available). A good place to start
is with the SMC web page at http://www.w9smc.com/newsletters.htm. A
good many folks have went to a lot of trouble to share good ideas -
all you have to do is dig a little bit to find those hidden treasures.
Sure - not everyone has room for multiple large towers, etc., but
there is information there by taking the time to look :-) I am sure
there are other repositories as well, and I would enjoy hearing about
them as well.
In the end, a lot of little things can all add up.
