Equipment Description: Barefoot Kenwood 450S/AT to a Sloper.
QRM: My third time playing in this game. Played 21 hours in an
attempt to defend my previous SO/LP 4th place SE Region title
and 1st place TN title. Actually increased my score by over 12%
with 3 hours less play time, compared to '96 and had ample rest
Saturday night to be up for Church Sunday morning. Much patience
is required when so many players are confined to such a small
playing field. Many HP guys were bumping and grinding among
the LP gentlemen practicing common courtesy. ;) This test was an
excellant proving ground for my new, single quarter-wave Sloper.
Seems as if it played okay. Thanks for the Qs! Go TCG!!!
