That brings up the 1956 (OR '57) ARRL CW Sweepsteaks.  I operated from 
WØANA, University of Denver ARC, Single Op, Single Transmitter (it was a 
Johnson Navigator, I seem to remember), and separate NC-300 (probably) 
receiver.  I remember placing 2nd in Colorado, to my amazement!

Logging was on paper.  Our school didn't have a computer until '59, it 
was a Burroughs 1K memory, with tube flip flops and memory banks.

Should we go back to those daze?

I'd bet that would reduce the number of contestants.

And, maybe All dozen of us could ALL work each other.  :)
