I think that all of these great ideas can be trialed quite easily in the "contest within a contest" format. Risks harm to no one. Those that want to try it do - those that don't or can't - don't. A l

Charles, As someone who has contested numerous times from 9M6, I can honestly say that I feel your pain. However, it todays "skimmer enhanced world", you should try CQing on bands that are not busy.

Peter, if that's the case, then there are A LOT of people still just using DX Summit and not cluster nodes based on the timing of "packet pile-ups" vs DX Summit spots. Those pile-ups should not exist

To be clear, there is NO universal connection of RBN spots to DX Summit at least. There is the W3LPL robot which does so. But that robot only does that on certain filtered DXCC spots. No idea what th
