According to Brian there's around an 'average' of 400 to 500 members, at 
any one given time.  That means we'd have to have some 100 different 
QSO's going on up and down the band, to get everyone in a round table 
that has a -maximum- of 5 people per QSO.  More stations than that is 
fairly unmanageable. 

Then, there's those of us (raising my 'guilty' hand) that get confused 
as to what the oder is, in what Otis/K5SWK calls a 'bikini sized group' 
(3 stations)  ;-)

Not that having 100 different AM QSO's on the air at one time is a -bad- 
thing, but I don't see the possibility of it happening, and still be 
able promote peace and good will towards other amateurs and existing 
QSO's, regardless of mode.

Looking forward to my 'turkey induced coma' in about 2 hours, from now :-)

What am I thankful for?
I am thankful for "Today".


Today, I was able to wake up, walk, talk and bitch about things I can 
not change.
Today, I am too blessed to be stressed.

Everyday of Freedom, is a GOOD day to Thank a Veteran!

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all.
