there i  was as ZK1DRA, with a modified hw16 and a 500 foot wire up a 90
foot palm tree, the thought of working 25 stations on 160, or running on
40, and i remembered

my midwest friends coming out to westport (WA) to go salmon fishing and
their comments on how the fish had cost them $360 a pound

lets see, a $6000 trip, 25 contacts, or about $240/ contact, give or take
a few bucks; or i could run on 40m...............

i chose 40m
