Omigosh, what a great solution to this problem.  I'm with Bob, has anyone
else made this work?  I tried using dueling CQs and all that did was keep my
run frequency running so fast, I never got any RF out on the PSE QSY TO
frequency.  I'm sure a few guys were put out with me for asking them to move
and then appearing to not be there.

  I hit the F key
