If I take all of my equipment and add it up, I will be way over the 250 pds. Will that count? Is there any software to use for logging? I would loveto get in there and I know I dont have a chance in heck to compete but would love to get in there and make some contacts if anyone can hear my puny 60 watts or so.

>> Its that time of year again for the AM Heavy Metal Rally. The purpose of this rally is to make as many station contacts in the AM mode using Heavy Metal Transmitters. An example of a Heavy Metal transmitter is a Johnson 500, Johnson Desk KW, T-368, a Ranger into a amplifier, or even a K7DYY transmitter. The Heavy Metal must weigh over 250 pounds or put out the legal limit.
