Yeah, then we will need a new rule:

"If you are CQing on the Mult Rigs, then the first new mult to be worked
counts towards the 10 minute rule.  Exception:  5 and only 5
transmitters may be used to solicit new multipliers."

Come on, multi-single is ONE transmitter as a run station and ONE
multiplier band transmitter.

That does not mean:  A RUN band TX
                     A RUN band Multiplier TX
                     A Mult TX
                     3 or 4 other MULT TX's calling CQ MULT

I return you to your regular program.

	 If the ARRL can have a 2 transmitter category, why not CQWW?
	 For the log checkers, a third transmitter could be spotted if other calls
start to get reported on other logs when the 3rd, and cheating transmitter
is on. Most stations can support two transmitters on at all times,
especially groups  that go on expeditions However, not everybody can fit in
	Keep multi-single, chances are most people will abandon that class because
it is no fun and now there would be an alternate to mult-multi.
	Send your comments to the CQWW committee and see if it can get changed for

I plan on putting up a full size quarter wave wire vertical this weekend
for the ARRL 160 contest.  It will be supported by a helium ballon and
have 4 radials on top of my office building.  The roof is 15' high so
I'm going to consider this an elevated radial/feed situation.  I also
plan on raising the feed point 10' off the roof and let the radials

Since this is my first attempt at a vertical of this type I'm looking
for some pointers as far as matching is concerned.  Do I need to build
some sort of a matching system or can I prune the antenna so I have a
low swr with a direct coax feed.

Thanks in advance.  Direct reply's please, I'll summarize and post.
