Common Steve... think BIG..... US territorial waters extend 200 miles from
the coast... Now, a steel hulled ship anchored 199.99 miles to the NE of the
very NE most point of the USA, equipped with remote control, beams on
hydraulic masts, etc...

Anybody have any knowledge or exigence with the 99 presets on the 3k ultra.
I tried to ordered the 99 presets box abt. 5 months ago. They told me there
was a glitch in the computer. Then they told me ther was a backlog in
production. I'm wondering if there is a problem.................Irv  K3KNH

I looked at my CQWW log and found that I worked 9 LUs on or below 28,350 
of a total of 101 LUs.  I knew that the LU novices were supposed to be 
there and I kept looking for them.  I wonder if THEY knew about this new 
allocation?  I also CQ'd down there a couple of times with no response.  
I guess the "Contest Free Zone" may be self enforcing!

How about a Pig Latin reflector for "pig farmers?"

I have always been curious if I were single band 10 meters and going got 
slow, if I could go to 15 and try to move mults or qsos up to 10.  My 
instinct was it would violate the spirit of being single band.

Ant ideas?

Since I never had a chance of winning before because I wasn't spending
enough, I'm now a little nervous that I haven't really made an adequate 
investment and the fame, noteriety and lusty admiration of the fans will
escape me.  So, Christo's brother Mephisto is coming tomorrow to wrap the 
neighborhood in aluminum foil, including those tall hemlock trees just to 
the west of our yard that have cried out for conductive material for so long.

There are probably much better 160m antenna designs, but this will be fabulously
expensive.  It was a little hard to get the permit, but when I told them
that the foil was going to be recycled, no problem.  I figure I can ship it
up to
VE1ZZ who could use having some money spent on that homemade stuff of his.  Of
course, he's already loud enough to weld my s-meter in +40db position, but
cost money and every cent spent will contribute to the cause of victory.
