Hello Juha,

With all respect to technical and operating skills developing our contesting
further, my opinion is that using two RUN-frequencies on one band
(interlocked transceivers assumed of course) is not a good development. I
fully agree with the new rules from the CQWW CC.

The behaviour demands double bandwidth per station on already overcrowded
bands during CQWW, this is NOT a sustainable development.

Contesting will then become a RUN-FEST for 100 Big Gun MS Stations occupying
all available bandwidth. The rest of stations, except for some equally Big
Gun SO stations, will be limited to 100 % Search and Pounce...

One must extend the imagination a little further and understand full
consequences of new technique and development.

No... I am not conservative by reflexes... I have operated many times in MS
efforts with two alternating RUN station. It is fun, it drives adrenaline
and it requires excellent and compatible operators - BUT it reduces
available space and amount of stations with 50% !!!
