It's so hard to even think about spending 10 hours in front of a radio. It's

I'll be the guy mowing, car washing, sipping lemonade on the porch, flying a 
model airplane, walking the dog, whatever. Yes, a contest in August does 
They are starting to suck year-round for me, maybe I've finally completely 
burned out. 
Good luck. Don't let a little thing like a rule stop you from running full 
power on any band.
