Hi Scott and everyone,
I believe the rationale behind not changing the weekends, is that those particular holidays are only holidays in the US. These are world-wide contests with participants from all over. Why should the contests be changed just because it's a holiday in the US? If we start that, it's possible the new dates would fall on holidays in some other major contest country and the argument for change would go on and on. This could suppress activity on the new dates as well, with maybe more US operators but fewer DX operators. I say leave well enough alone, those who wish to participate will find a way, and those who cannot will operate in other contests.

Amuse me, can we rehash a tired old debate for a little while on the reflector?

Make sure to read all of this before flaming me, because the status quo
for CQ WW CW works for me at the moment.  But I don't think it works
for a lot of other people.  I would like to know the reasoning involved
behind why this can't be changed from the CQ committee members, or why
even considering it is not possible.
