OH NO!!! Let's see... If you and 10 other W6 guys dont go out of the
country.... That means I work 680 mults instead of 690. Dxpeditions in
the ARRL and CQ DX contests are really appreciated. A mult in those
contests is a big deal. Times 6 and it's an even bigger deal. But in
the WPX, it's just not the same. Every 3rd Q is a mult.
Sorry Bruce, but making the contest longer so that 5% of the participants
can give the other 95% ONE more mult doesn't exactly seem like it should
be much of a priority. Of course I'm one of the 95%. Stay home and
operate. Or come to Georgia. Your off times can be spent at the boiled
peanut stand down the road.
