Visalia needs help.
73, de -KR- N6RCE 
PS - can you turn your MIC gain down a bit?  10 pt, even 12 pt is fine.  14 pt 
isn't needed, 
takes up too much spectrum.

Subject: Re: [CQ-Contest] Dayton and the forum issues

Lets take a step back in history. At one time there was a West Coast hamfest 
held in Las Vegas, it was called SAROC. You talk about
politics, whiners, and complainers it had them all. I was an exhibitor at the 
last SAROC, in the 70's, and I was also an exhibitor
that same year at Dayton. Dayton is still alive and reasonably healthy while 
SAROC is long gone dead and buried.
My point being the whiners and complainers and rumor mongers ruined SAROC. 
Instead of being positive and helpful the whiners and
complainers and rumor mongers got on their various soapboxes demanding a 
boycott  and killed the hamfest.
It sounds like Dayton needs a little tweaking to fix things not a bunch of 
threats or a bunch of criticism. From almost every
report, I hear, Visalia doesn't need any help.
Suggesting boycotting is what killed SAROC and boycotting will kill Dayton. If 
you have suggestions for improving Dayton or Visalia
why not contact them directly and make your ideas known. Keep in mind 
most-likely Dayton was around before you were a ham, so start
out small and with respect.
