Okay you "hate the zero point, hate the 36 hour format, hate
the wrong weekend" WPX types. Here is a GENUINE challenge. Perhap
Mr. contesting.com can help out (not sure which call Bill is
using now ????). Maybe some contest clubs can pitch in together.
THIS IS A FOR-REAL, SERIOUS SUGGESTION!!!!
I say.... MAKE YOUR OWN CONTEST!
Fashion it in the form of the WPX if you like, use whatever point
structure you like, and run it in April (when Dayton USED to run).
There is no better proof than success. This is a PERFECT opportunity
for you to put REAL TEETH into your thoughts and ideas. Let's face
it, 40 guys voting to change the point system is NOT convincing.
A successful contest IS convincing! You run it, and I'll give it
a try! Give out T-shirts to encourage participation (ala WRTC).
You don't need ARRL or CQ...you CAN do it. PICK UP THE GAUNLET!
You have almost a year to prepare.
