For contests, why don't we all just move back UP the band, just like it was
before the FCC came out with their shortsighted new subbands????

Sooner or later, SOMEONE'S gwan hafta petition the FCC to move the lower

everybody and everything together and creating complete chaos and
unmeasurable bad will between the different modes.
