I vote an enthusiastic "Aye"!
We have long sequestered the Novices and Tech+ folks away on
tiny little frequency ghettos where they meet no-one except more
Novices and Tech+ licensees. Then we are surprised that few of
them become "mainstream" operators.
Let's let them mix with mainstream hams, expose them to the
"culture" of HF, and watch how fast they upgrade to get on
the "real" DX/contesting bands like 20.
