I agree!

While the FT modes have made it sooo much easier for people even with modest ststions to make contacts.

Thing is even when the band is wide open, no one is down doing CW.

And that is sad a decent CW op can easily make probably 10 CW contacts in the time it takes to make one perfect no repeats needed FT contact.

Maybe a contest sponsor should change the points value like

Like per QSO  CW=3 points,, SSB 2 points and Digital 1 point.

2022 June 11-13 .. K5AM .. 131 CW QSOs  (SSB only 126, digital none)

I hope Jim's remarks do not discourage anyone
from tuning 50,080 to 50,100 during the
next VHF contest.
