Unfortunately, the multi-single class is the
class available for "guys like us."  That's the
situation that W3MF/K3PH are in: one radio,
one amplifier, one set of antennas, one computer.
Still, if you get enough time in the chair, it's
possible to be reasonably competitive.  W3MF M/S
finished 10th in USA in CQWW SSB and K3PH finished
6th in USA on CW.  Chair time was about 40 hours
on phone and about 43 on CW.

I suspect there are a lot of us in this situation.
