Hey, Jim, how about running your PC on 220 volts along with your linear?!
Seriously, I didn't do the CQ 160 this weekend, but I've encountered what
you describe in other contests using the latest releases this past year. I
don't recall the details because it didn't cause me to operate different,
like CQing for example, so I just pushed through it.
