Truer words were never spoken. a 48 hour contest provides the
opportunity for a lesser-equipped station to overcome that limitation
to some extent. Not a guarantee of course, but a chance.

Personally, I have never done a full 48 but it's always there if I
really, really want to. Maybe someday. :-)
