Guys - Can we finish with this annually recurring topic and do something
about it?  Find a weekend in April or September, establish your dream
contest rules, tell everyone to be there, set up a website, and see how it
goes for a couple years.  It should be amazingly popular with contesters
west of the Mississippi in the US, all of Oceana, Deep Asia, and South
America.  The rest of US and EU I am sure will join in as usual.  Count me
in as well.


If you insist on a contest that is existing be changed to try it, I would
suggest the major contest with the absolute worst growth rate and
demographics currently operating, ARRL Sweepstakes.  Or, if it needs to be a
DX contest, probably IARU RadioSport is the hind dog in the pack fro growth.
All other majors are growing quite nicely as is.
