|Ahhh the old setup along with a great antenna............|
1. Stay with the contest and not to get frustrated.
2. Try not to use the morse code reader and do most by ear....see how that works out.
3. Have fun and not worry about the score as with my setup placing anywhere for anything is most likely out of the question.
I will keep you posted as to how things go in the contest.....oh and the new setup as well....maybe I will hang some garlic close to the shack to keep Murphy away....:)
