If each & every one of the contributors (and there are many!) to this thread
about the 160-meter contest was to take pen & paper in hand & actually WRITE to
his/her representative on the ARRL Contest Committee---with a "cc" to the
committee chairman---I'm sure the numbers alone would make them sit up &
Repeated past personal experience here has demonstrated to me that such action
really & truly CAN be effective. Even just a single, solitary letter can get
the powers-that-be to think along your lines, provided you've made a strong
enough argument for what it is that you might be arguing for.
You have the ability to induce change, but only IF you communicate with the
proper persons...and like-minded numbers here certainly would help, rather than
hinder, your cause!
