In the aftermath of one of my favorite state QSO parties, the post-contest
discussion every year turns to things that could be done to make it better
next year.

A relatively new contester has been pushing, hard, for the contest to add

often slow going).  So far, the response has been very strong -- against the

However, I want to be fair.  So even though I've operated in the WAE and
have my own opinion of this proposal, I'm curious as to what other
experienced contesters might think.

So, the question is:  What do you think of a state QSO party adding a
WAE-style QTC report?  Is it something that would spice up the contest, or
something that would work against it?

Please reply direct, and after a few days, I'll post a summary.
