OJ, with your skill as a contest operator, one does not need the highest or 
most elaborate antenna. You could compete on a CB whip. Contest rules provide 
categories for MM, SO, HP, LP, QRP etc. If there was a category for "all 
antennas below 95 ft" I bet there would be more entries, and more 
competition. Let the superstations compete. But also let the average station 
compete. It would also test ones skill in designing a competitive antenna 
system within the 95 ft limit. It can be done.  By the way, IMHO the skill of 
the OPERATOR and the height of his antenna are not in any way related.

I think we have strayed a bit from the theme of the reflector!!
