"How do you get to Carnegie Hall?" the guy asked his cab driver. The reply, "Practice. Practice. Practice." I think we all can acknowledge that practice is an important part of learning and improving

With all due respect, Shelby, I think this is incredibly narrow-minded. At its word, your suggestion would bar anyone who is less than perfect from any contest, since we are ALL using contests to get

I would also agree, and point out that waiting doesn't always have to do with "the other radio" and an operator that's not ready for "prime time". Maybe the call processing takes some time. Maybe che
