The three or four I have on the wall from the early 80's only have the
station callsign.  I think CQ is the only sponsor to put individual
operators calls on the plaques.

This may seem redundant to some out there but before last years CQWW CW I
had no reason to EVER expect to have to wonder about this.

How long after the CQWW results are printed does the certificate arrive?
Our M/M op last year got the bold print in the listings so we are eagerly
awaiting our wallpaper.

Reply direct please.

I have heard that a rubber snake is used to scare off birds....

My dad used one in his cherry trees and it worked!

But, how do explain that to the neighbors?

Subject: Band Reject Coaxial Stubs
Message-ID: < at>

The orginal message talked about FD.  One of the things to consider is
spacing.  I have used stubs also, but most FD operations tend to "clump"
together.  The rules state you have a 1,000 yard radius to put up station.
I would suggest that one of the ways to increase rejection/interference is
to increase the space between antennas...and or reduce power.  

Just my two cents of brain power....whoops...I guess I am done for the day
