Hey guys. Times have changed and technology has changed.

First, who said a bunch of guys can't have fun operating the "old 
fashioned" M/S. True, you won't win, but you can still have fun.  It's 
not a coincidence the same stations, more or less, are in the top ten 
every year. They have the hardware, location, skill(s) and operator(s).

Second, the same argument can be made for single op. Just change the 
phrase "multi-op with a friend," above, and replace it with single op. 
How many single op stations, nowadays, are set up with two radios, two 
sets of antennas, etc?

Time, and competitiveness, marches on...
