I'll be in El Salvador from 18 November through 28 November.  This will   
be a CW operation.  Have a R5 for 20M-10M and am looking for something   
for 80M-30M.  I'll also be doing a low key operation during the CQ WW.

True.  There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, either way you 
choose to do it.  Next thing you know they'll be trying to make you feel bad 
for not putting a 20dB attenuator in your receive line.  ;-)

73 es good job!

Baloney.  We don't see many instances (if at all) where an inferior 
operator wins or even places quite high from a superstation.  In this 
case, KR0Y proved that.  Of course, this was SS.  Had it been CQWW, the 
results may have been different.  In SS less modest antenna farms can 
do quite well. (But Jeff is so good he would probably find a way to win even 
if he was using a rubber-duckie ;-))

I do agree that it's more impressive to see one person "do it all", but 
it isn't practical in real life.  Not all of us are in a position 
to be able to spend time and money on a superstation.  So why deny good 
operators a chance to use their skills to test the limits of their 

And I'd like to comment on "people with mega-bucks to blow on a station, but 
not much motivation".  I haven't seen any instances where this has been 
true.  And not all station builders spend mega-bucks to build 
superstations.  Take W3LPL for example.  That's a station built with lots 
of sweat, hard work, and ingenuity on Frank's part.  Lots of others 
sweated too (I know because I helped him build it in the summer of 1986).

"A superb operator with all the motivation and time in the 
world but little hardware":

These days I don't know many people at all with all the time in the world.
Perhaps where you are this may be true, but I know people all over the 
country and don't find it to be the case.  You sound awfully bitter making 
these statements.  Why does it bug you so much?

I don't know about a separate category others have defended this idea and a
few more it seems like have shot it down.   Why not simply on the summary
sheet or entry form have a box that says "This is the first time I have
entered this contest."  Check it if it is so.  Then the mags can put all the
entrants in bold print if they want with a big welcome to the contest
community.  Did they expect to win right out of the box?  Probably not.  But
at least they now know what a "fraternity" the contest community is.  

My first taste of contesting was in IARU 1994.  This was my first CW SS.  In
between I have dabbled here and there.  I have guest op'ed once (KX8D in
IARU 95) but mostly make somewhere in the 100-200 Q efforts from my puny
station.  I enjoy the challenge of making myself a better operator and that
is a direct result of the encouragement from those of you in the contest
community - WX9E, N0BSH, K6LL, N6TR, AJ9C to name a few - in spite of the
low scores.

Some people are born with "brass ones" (as it has been stated here before),
but contesting for the most part is an attitude that needs to be nurtured.
I thank those who have encouraged me over the past year.

73 and CU on the bands!
