Well, that´s quite drastic. What if the contest sponsor
would stipulate what frequencies can be used, i e a band
plan for the cqww contest. Beats me why nobody has come
up with this idea before. Don´t tell me it can´t be enforced
becourse it can.
I think we are at the point now that the contest sponsors
must stipulate more rules and regulations, it´s too much
of an anarchy out there.

Two relatively simple solutions:
1) Eliminate 40 meters from SSB contests. RTTY is not used on 160, in RTTY
contests, and I've heard no one complain?
2) Eliminate SSB contests?  :))

I could live with both .
