According to Webster's dictionary:
"Sustain: 1) To keep in existence: MAINTAIN"
With that definition, 3Y0PI and BS7H wouldn't qualify, as well as a
couple other DXpedition and CONTEST sites.

So there you are, guys - right from the source. Thanks!
One gentleman suggested that I insert the floppy in the drive, squirt about
a gallon of gas in the slot and ignite it. While clearly effective, this
proved to have some unfortunate side effects, and was finally discontinued
at the request of the local authorities. :-)

In fact Barry, I think it's wrong that the ARRL wastes our money installing
ANY telephones, when probably only 50% of the membership ever uses them.
And it's nothing short of disgraceful that they provide Internet access for
the specially privileged (presumably all Democrats).
Onward to '96 - 1896!
