I learned from KQ2M a few years ago.....get a clock that has a sweep second
hand and
PROMISE yourself that you will try your darndest to make at least one MORE
contact by the
time the second hand hits 12....really makes a small contest every minute
and before you
know it, it will be over and you will have a new record!

it really does help you focus every single minute of the contest...put it
right in your face and 
make it the one thing you concentrate on. If it helps, and you like him,
make it a Mickey Mouse clock...and Mickey will help you raise your
rate....(or Betty Boop, or anyone)

(this is not a joke...and has nothing to do with cows ..I hope!)

        Praise the Lord the Linn County Tower Ordinance applies only to that
         If you read the document, there is NO mention of the special status
of Amateur Radio under PRB-1. Commercial towers do not have the same special
status that amateurs have under FCC guideline- this ordinance never
differentiates  between the two totally different types of classes.
        For those in need of help concerning tower ordinates, contact the ARRL-
        Or was this ordinance really an early April Fool's joke?

W7NI: I guess all I can say on this is, knowing the little that I do about
Lotus 1-2-3, it appears to be a very general spreadsheet program and has
extremely wide applications.  I don't know it well enough to know if there is
built-in advice on how to construct a financial analysis of a company such as

In fact, both Excel and 1-2-3 include "templates" for doing
a variety of very specific calculations.

W0UN has suggested another parallel.  There are half a dozen
tax prep software programs on the market.  A tower software
writer could easily steal their disclaimer clauses.
