On the other hand, as the guy who came in #1 in the WRTC (the "real" winner),
I felt cheated when everyone got a tee shirt that said "winner". For a change,
here was a contest where I WAS G-A, and everyone was a so-called "winner".
How would you really feel if N2RM, W3LPL, K1AR and K4VX/0 all got the exact
same award, regardless of how they placed relative to each other ? Gee,
maybe I ought to enter M/M using 100 watts to a wet noodle, make 50 or 100
QSO's, so I can receive the same recognition as N2RM !
