Some antenna work paid off, others not.  Still behind on the 20M numbers, back
to the drawing board.

I was experiencing an odd behavior w/ N1MM and the MK2R+.  With PTT engaged in
Microham router for CW, when using the {STOPTX}{CTRLFx} macros in N1MM, the PTT
line on the active radio would get keyed very briefly before firing off the
second radio CQ.  Despite careful timing, there were times when numbers or
other parts of the other ops exchange would get blanked out.  Trying to dance
around that messed up timing, cause for repeats, etc.

Three amps (2x SB-1000, Titan 450) were running to eliminate tuning during band
change from 20 to 80 on the second radio, just need to automate the switching
next time, too many knobs to forget.
