What are the Competetion Classes based on, Pill Count?
Also what is more common: Dead key or Forward swing?

yep pill count...2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, and DC Sky...

when we key in a keydown, we put everything to the max.....so what ever it takes and hope the hell it holds for 10 sec. audio is so scrambled up anyway so the quality of the audio is not the top priority... but when just riding and talking, we turn everything back down and let the audio swing...

If you go for forward swing in a keydown, you'll lose.

It's funny that swing is king on the road, but a *Censored* is what it takes at a keydown. I like a *Censored* drive around, so I guess I slice it down the middle. Same deal for keydown radios. It appears the 29/uniden is the weapon of choice, and the export is the deal drive around. You'd think for max signals both would be the same, as far as radio and carrier/dk choice. I guess this is in the name of pill conservation. That's why I just double the pill count and loaf it. -drdx
Yes it's me, Dollar-98, drdx, the original all *Censored*, shot cawla on workin this no-fade technology.
