Watching all the discussion about which sections people had trouble finding,
I couldn't resist going through my SS log to see which sections were easy 
and which were not.  Here are the counts I found (out of 1100 total):

AK  1  PAC 1  YU  1  MS  2  PQ  2  WY  2  MAR 3  MB  3  NE   3 ND  3  NV  3
SD  3  VI  3  VT  3  MT  4  PR  4  SB  4  SC  4  SK  4  AL   5 ME  5  BC  6
EWA 6  WTX 6  ID  8  LA  8  RI  8  WMA 8  AR  9  DE  9  IA   9 ONT 9  SFL 9
SJV 9  AB  10 WVA 10 AZ  11 NFL 11 NLI 11 NM  11 OK  11 SF  11 UT  11 SDG 12
MO  13 ORG 13 LAX 14 KY  14 NH  14 SNJ 14 SV  15 TN  15 NC  16 KS  17 WPA 17
GA  18 ORE 19 NNJ 20 EB  21 IN  23 EPA 24 CT  25 MDC 27 NTX 28 WNY 28 WI  29
ENY 30 MN  30 VA  30 STX 31 WWA 31 EMA 32 CO  32 MI  35 OH  44 SCV 44 IL  57

Based on this, I'd say the place to be this last weekend was Mississippi!
(I knew that funny looking money my KY relatives left me would be worth 
something someday.)  The NE stations I found were all low sequence number
calls going S&P--and they didn't come by until late in the game.  But who
would have believed so many MT and UT stations?  (And I didn't even work
                              -Bruce, AA6KX  (operating from SCV)

I'm kinda hesitant to send this, but I don't know of a better way to get
expert opinions. I'm thinking about graduating from my trusty ole IC735 to
a TS940. Seems to me that I've heard the 940 isn't any good in a multi
environment due to phase noise from the transmitter. Something also tells
me phase noise was a problem in the receiver of early serial numbers. Can
anyone tell me of any pitfalls with the 940 and if there are any serial
number series to avoid? About 80% of my operating is cw. I have a friend
with a real clean radio which has a couple of IR 500hz filters in it.
Maybe the phase noise on receive isn't a problem because running low
power, if I can't hear them due to phase noise they probably won't hear me
anyway! Kind of like my short beverages on the low bands. I can't work
everything I hear now, so extending the beverages might be another effort
in futility! Appreciate ur comments.
