Man.... talk about knocking the joy out of an event. 

*Hintings of cheating or dishonest strategies, (spotting advantage or 

*suggestions of changing the WRTC format to a "Sprint" format with qsy rules  

(IARU HF is not a Sprint), 

*skimmers and  cluster bs, (every contest) 

*suggestions of having contestants using a "low end" radio and dipole antennas, 

(is this the mainstream of contesting?) 

*wanting a mainstream magazine (other than NCJ) to run article to reflect the 
blog post, and 

complain that the contestants haven't posted comments on the blog 

( they tra veled to Russia, not Wisconsin for this competition, and at great 
personal expense. 

Some made t his a vacation of a lifetime after the contest,  cut  them some 

maybe the reflector will clear itself of this before CQWW. 

I offer congratulations to all of the contestants and the sponsors!
