Well, one of them can put up a dipole, I know.  He's licensed and has
antennas up.  I helped, too.  I know another one of them can do his own
major car repairs.  I don't know if any of them solder.

It's a good point, Zack, but my comment was mostly aimed at "where
youngsters are most likely to bump into contest results."  I think they are
more likely to find it by random webbing than by walking down the street and
seeing QST any more.
