Some of the CQWWCW 3830 posts and a few individuals on this forum certainly are 
forthcoming with their
opinions about Skimmers and the contesters that admit to using them (by 
entering the assisted class). Well, it's
a free country, so keep posting!

This was my first CQWWCW assisted, and the sparkle is back in my eye, the flame 
is back on! I feel like the
first time I used a computer logging program, NA loaded up on DOS on my super 
fast 386 16 mhz machine.
This changes everything!

It now takes a 1M point score to get into the top 100 for SOABHP (A), any 
increase in activity is good. Those
ops in W1-2-3-4 that don't want distance based scoring can't possibly know how 
boring a DX contest can be 
out west. Just look at how few W6/W7 logs with over 25 hours of activity have 
been reported on 3830. Not
everyone can live on a mountain top or have 2+ towers and stacks just to play 
the game to win. Again, if it
attracts more contestants, and generates more QSO's, it must be good for ALL of
