Tried SO2R for the first time in a contest which really made operating more
intense and interesting. Not much experience on the net about using both radios
for S&P instead of the prevailing CQ-and-search-combination, so there is of
course much to test and learn for me. But with the smaller technical investment
at qrp-level it worked fine already in the most simple form: one
multiband-antenna for each rig without all that elaborate switching and 
protection stuff. 

So perhaps as a small encouragement for other small pistols (or for the
amusement of the Formula 1) the small list what relatively few was needed:
Rigs: K2 & IC-718; N1MM for keying (no rig-control yet) both rigs; small box
for audio-switching and "some" wires and plugs; two matchboxes for the
Antennas: 40m-doublet @ 10m + provisional 80-m-doublet with such a short and
straight feedline run that both dipole-arms could be used as independent endfed
wires making for an 80m-sloper and a horizontal 20m-wire @ 10m

The contest itself went without big surprises given the rare DX in it and the
condx we slowly get used to... 

Best 73, Chris
