Shucks, I'll chip in a few bucks to help get VY1JA a 160m antenna if he doesn't have one!

Umh, Herb and I have been discussing the possibilities of remote contesting from his place for over a year.  Recent tests results (since I finally got wireless here a week ago) indicated the latency issue for 35WPM CW Contesting is still a problem.  I'm not ready to give on the prospects yet, however.
