and the land to put it on with a relatively low noise floor can be a BIGGER
cost impediment than adding a second radio and tower to an already
To be competitive in this sport, you need a very good to great location that
can support at least a big tower/antennas with a relatively low noise floor

cost of entry at the competitive level. To then say adding SO2R is somehow
the cost barrier is naïve.
PS ? I literally picked my homesite with competitive radio contesting in
mind. One, 2, or 3 towers after that was about time and maintenance hassle,
not about money.
