I have no interest and I doubt such a thing would be legal.

Would anyone be interested in a contest that you had to pay a $20 entry fee?
I am still working on the rules.
1-10 place would get a HF radio for there prize as long as I get enough
operators enter the contest to cover the cost of the prizes it should work.
