As an "all-mode" contester, I would have to say that the RTTY WPX is the
second or third largest RTTY contest of the year.

The XE RTTY contest is a very minor and shouldnt even be considered as an

Irregardless, I would not concern myself too much with trying to dodge RTTY
contests.  The Sprints are only 4 hours on the second night of the DX
contest and there are other places the DX will go, even tho a lot of them
are supposed to stay between 7030 and 7040.

Since the RTTY WPX has 18 hours of off time in 48 hours, there are a lot of
guys off the air as well.

RTTY has been having to dodge all kinds of QRM in the lower section of the
band for years and years.  They should be used to it by now.  Perhaps the
Sprinters will want to avoid this window, staying above 7040 or below 7030.
However, there is already EU packet/pactor below 7040  to 7030 and SSB above
7040 which they still have to deal with on a regular basis.

If you want to move the Sprint or WPX that would be fine with me.
Personally I'd like to see the RTTY WPX move to the first weekend because
it's too close to the ARRL DX weekend for me to participate seriously.  My
family will only tolerate so many adjacent contesting weekends and they are
quite tolerant as it is... The Sprints being only 4 hours long "dont count"
as contest weekends in my book! hi!

Just my humble opinions.

73, Ty K3MM
