Hi Peter

I don ´t think so.  :)
I have just 2x BOGs, 1x Hi-Z vertical and MiniDiamond W2PM loop all
connected to
wireless antenna switch. If You will add the 
time for tunning around frequency using RIT + playing with four rx
antennas and tx antenna 
then You have about 5sec...
Well of course sometime its all much shorter but 
I wanted to note that listenning just 2-3sec only 
is really short and it´s possible to missing weak sigs very easily...

Thank You Peter,

73 - Petr, OK1RP
