Using FSK and the Twin Peak Filter on the Pro3 vs AFSK and the standard filters
is definitely better.
I was surprised that I worked more stations on 20 than 40 and 80 since the
SuperLoop80 is very good on both of those bands and is only a piece of wire on
20.  My wires are OK but a tower and yagi would have been very nice.  Maybe in
my next life.  

I spent some time running on 80 with the inverted L and using the UWE that I
hastily put up last week.  It heard surprising well compared to the delta loop
and I did A/B comparisons every chance I got.

Considering that all my antennas are wire and I only ran 400 watts I'm happy
with my totals.  I ran the first 30 minutes at 150 watts but wasn't getting
out.  Once I switched the amp on things got much better.  I managed to get 21
hours of operating time in but it seemed much longer.
