I was just browsing the NG3K contest operation announcement site. I think
this is a great tool for boosting enthusiasm, especially with the casual ops.
I notice that most of the postings have full call signs as well as the intended
class. Doesn't this amount to pre-contest game play and soliciting of Q's?
Especially with regard to single band operations. Before the Internet, was
there a similar hardcopy publication?
Sorry for taking this off on a tangent.
