    I think more than I operate. For instance, I did not like my 6btv's performance on 20m during the contest so wondering what I can put up before the next contest. I may just put up a dipole but then I ponder that perhaps I need to put up TWO 20m dipoles for some gain in all directions

    I'm not a procrastinator, but let's not talk about that right now.;)

    Michaelangelo Buonarroti would stand looking at a block of marble for what seemed like ages to those who watched him work. When asked what he was doing he replied:

    “The sculpture is already complete within the marble block, before I start my work. It is already there, I just have to chisel away the superfluous material.”

    That's what we're doing when we think... chiseling away.

    I am betting I am 90% thinking/researching/etc and 10% doing.

    Me too.
    Maybe its an age thing, but in recent years I have gone from being an engineer to an 'imagineer'.

    Hopefully you mean a 'newb', not a 'noob'. There's a difference y'know.

    Gettin' old, are ya, like me? :) I was once a high end software engineer. As a poor kid, I was a dreamer. Now I'm a poor old man, and have returned to dreaming. Can't complain a great deal. Dreams are cool, sometimes. :)
