Hi Tim:

Sure you can, but you are running Force 12 vs my trapped tri-bander.

Come out to play in the next RAC test and take my records from
me ;-)

Tim is one of the better QRP contesters in Calgary. I am always
in his shadow. He even has beaten me out when I was running

Timing and quality will beat out brute force.

73 es have fun
