A great article by K3NA and W2VJN has just been republished on the 
Contesting Compendium.  See 
<>.  At 
first blush, you might wonder "what's so interesting about another 
DXpedition story?", but if you check it out you'll see.  VP6DX was 
arguably the most successful low-band DXpedition in history, and the 
article is full of information that will be useful for anyone interested 
in improving their Beverage set-up.  Includes schematics of the 
splitters/combiners and bandpass filters they used, with full component 
information, including a simple filter designed to permit simultaneous 
RX and TX operation on 80 CW and 75 SSB.
