Hi Milt

But, what if your competitor is running a quarter mile and you are running a
half mile.  You ain't gonna win many races :-)  73

I am a competitor.  I often liken amateur radio contesting to the Hot Rod
1/4 mile drag strips.  You work on your "rod" (station) all week long and
then you go the the drags on Saturday night (favorite contest) to see how
your rod (radio & antennas) and your driving skills (operating) stack up
against your hobby friends.
