Agreed......but I'd like to see the rules reach some steady state. Otherwise
the all-time records keep getting reset and there will never a connected
history to the contest.
I've operated WPX more or less every year for the past ten years and
30 hours was fine with me. I have traditionally operated as
single-op, some all-band and some single-band (even did 40m phone a
couple of times, sick). As single-op all-band there is much more
strategy involved in a 30-hour as opposed to a 36-hour contest. I
think I favor the 30-hour format because I thrive on the competitive
and strategy aspects of contesting.
But I can live with 36 hours.....more time to run guys....
I think this is being a little overanalyzed.....besides, it's not
WORLD WIDE they've changed.....IT'S ONLY WPX...
