when the sp test fitrst evolved i thot at last a test that would level the
playing field a bit! i even won the
first years running from the NW wow!! running HP
now i see the qrp class with its 4x multiplier as just another way the NE
stns have come up with to continue their dominance of yet another contest!!
be dammed if i will spend a prime time weekend (xmas season) to make a 100
q's on 160 qrp ...lifes to short!
