Thats also would be good.

Then the are a competitor, I already know my run frequency on all bands. :-)
Just kidding.

I got some comments on my remarks regarding VP6DX.
I was referring to the CQ160 operation, not the ARRL DX.
In the CQ160 the part of the band was useless because the big signal 
overmodulated broadband transmitting dx-ers were trying to work VP6DX, 
usually not because they heard them, but because they were spotted. They 
were not interested in the contest. I think this problem only exists in 
Most contesters would have skipped this difficult multiplier because it 
took too long to brake the pile up.
