I think DX'ers have more to worry about in that regard, Joe.

I'm trying to remember the last time I ever operated split during
a contest.  The only times would have been on 40m in an SSB
contest and that's been over 10 years since I ever did anything
like that.

I can't think of many occurrences where contesters are operating
split, except on 40 SSB.   I can't think of any CW contests where
there was significant split operations....maybe where a major
DXpedition was underway during the contest, but that's not

I think most of the split frequency/QRM problems result from
DXpeditions than from contests.

I think ya got the wrong guys, Joe!
