Re: stock is a purists challenge

Gary DeBock

Hi Richard,

Well, I can't think of anyone whose DXing hasn't helped in antenna
experimentation more than you, Richard, both with the MW plug-in
loopsticks (multiple TP's in Oklahoma), and LW plug-in loopsticks
(multiple LW-TA's). Your efforts and success have made a huge
difference, and are appreciated.

As far as the current Barefoot/ Unlimited Class discussion, as you
probably know, it's actually been going on for about 3 years in our ULR
group. Both ULR Classes have different challenges, but we all use the
same radios. We all have the freedom to choose our category, and
compete accordingly. We've generally had great mutual respect between
the two classes for 3 years, which is probably why our Ultralightdx
group is one of the most enthusiastic segments of the AM-DXing hobby.
Thanks again for your contributions to the effort, Richard, and please
feel free to share your opinions at any time.

73, Gary

I didn't mean to sound as if I don't appreciate yours and the others
efforts because I do. I have probably benefited more than most DXers
because of them. But I feel we occasionally need to have this
discourse in order to keep our unique hobby reined in.
