I don't have any complaints about the RR contest rules. But a 10
minute rule won't work for VHF contests that have a Portable and Rover
class. A lot of the Rovers and Portables don't even get home till a
few hours after the contest. Sometimes more. It takes me a couple
hours just to tear down and pack everything up.
