Hi Guy

Well, I think the biggest thing will to just forget trying to work much DX 
on Friday night.  There are so many other stations calling, you will just be 
a noise in the far background (know this from experience, even when running 
500 watts and 3 verticals).  Later on Saturday night, the bedlam seems to 
quiet down a bit and us "l'il pistols" have a lot better chance of getting 
through.  73
