I've been doing contesting for nearly 9 years now, and because of physical problems that led to SS Disability 4 years ago, I just don't have the stamina to do as well as I used to do.  I'm writing to encourage the Disabled among us who love contesting that you can lower your expectations without lowering your enjoyment. Consider the following tips:

1. Remember, it's for FUN!
2. Take frequent breaks.
3. Tune carefully, and above all, relax!
4. Quality vs. quanity-multipliers instead of sheer  volume.
5. Don't beat yourself to death in pileups.
6. If you get overly tired, take a longer break!
7. You don't HAVE to turn in a log!
