Re: Jim's GAZETTE Newsletter #124
Hey Jay and All,
I think Jim's thoughts are pretty accurate.
In my opinion, and we all know what opinions are like, the mega-buck, mega-watt stations don't have much of an advantage over the plain ole, run of the mill rig, in a PSK contest, except for one thing, all these fellers who spend more money on their amplifiers, than I make in a year, have extraordinarily good antennas. I think the antenna along with LOTS of persistence are the keys to getting a good score in a PSK contest. Besides, it sure is more satisfing to work someone halfway around the world on 25 watts, rather than a killerwatt.
