Sneak outside Mike <grin>, the weekday passes are a lot of fun and if I 
can regurally do it with just a whip antenna and 5 watts, anybody can do 
it! John Mock told me of a technique using a chain link fence to act as a 
reflector, I have found that I can use one of those great big steel trash 
dumpsters and accomplish the same thing. I do look a bit odd lurking 
around a trash dumpster but it's amazing how a big piece of steel like 
that can really help out as a reflector.
