all this talk about wpx operating time is getting a bit over-complicated. i have always liked wpx. 30 hours seemed a bit short too me in the past but after having done 4 or 5 years of single band efforts i much prefer 30 hours. i did an all band effort this time and the 36 hours was just about right for that. i would not have wanted anymore. having said that, it is real simple. 30 hours the best esp. for single banders. 36 hours is ok -- you dont get as much tv watching time though. 2x points for the low bands is more than enough incentive. i took most of my off time during the day so that i was on when i could make contacts on 40m. make the contest 30 to 36 hours long and forget all this talk of diffrent 12 or 6 hours segments or whatever. well wait maybe if we .... yeah.... you can only operate for one hour but then you must take the next 2 hours off unless the next complete hour is on 160 or the next 2 hours is on 80 for 1/3 of the 2 hours with the other 2/3 's of the 2 hours spent on 160 if and only if you take the next hour off. off time counts as off time -- no exceptions -- you can watch cabbage punching on tv or clean out the garage. geoiii wb5vzl austin c.k.u.
