Hi Jim/KC4HW , 


Thanks for all the contest Q's.


I am sure you'll get responses on CQ-CONTEST, but as you probably are aware,
you could find all the info you might need right on www.3830scores.com ,
where I notice you do post your scores.

Scan all the comments and many people list their rig, antennas, amps,
software etc.

Yes, it will be time consuming, but I do it on an ongoing basis.


Alternately, or maybe in addition to, CQWW & CQWPX has a TB+wires OVERLAY
class in some of their contests, so I wonder if you could see owns what on

search that as an overlay category?


GL in your endeavour.


My thinking is MOST folks own a TB and 40/80m inverted VEE and it's only the
top 10 or 20 guys in each major contest that own much more.


For my own SURVEY, 95% is done here with an HF9V on 10-40, and inverted L's
on 80/160.

You are welcome to see on 3830 on how I do with this minimalist setup.
