Yes, that is what I was thinking of when I was writing earlier 
this morning.  I have found that the more I have done this 
and the more I have done high QSO rate hours and two radios that 
it seems I have more and more time to do many other things even
when the rate is high. I find that a 250 hour these days is 
easy as long as folks keep calling.  It is really cool.

I have also found that I do really get into the zone these days 
at times and the radios and stuff just kind of disappears and 
have feelings that my mind is connected directly to the 
audio coming in - almost as if the antennas or signals are 
coming directly to me.  You can stop laughing. It is really 
true, and not just at 47 hours of being awake either.
