Unfortunately I havent got one - but surely someone out there with an 
appreciation for this very fine radio has built one. 

All I need is something to follow band changes in contests with the 
radio. It doesnt have to follow CT for spot grabs, as I invariably 
operate single op unassisted. 

This weekend by the way - for the CQ WW 160 - I shall be devoting the 
contest to a mega receiver test. I have my 930S and Omni6. A company 
over here has very kindly agreed to loan me a FT1000MP - fully 
filtered. This will be a good opportunity to evaluate the MP in 
contest conditions. If anyone wants to know results, please Email me. 
In the unlikely event of major interest in my opinion, I'll publish 
for all to see.

Hello fellow speculators,

W6QHS and others on this channel show me why I intuitively am suspect of 
engineering and math and statistics that tend to PROVE  something.  About 
the wind on the beam question, I add by asking:

"Why doesn't a weather vane turn itself some screwy way in a wind but 
instead points to the wind direction?"

Be sure to give me some math and convuluted additional stuff.  Tnx.
