Respectfully, I don't think this is anywhere close to right. For example, the CAC did an exemplary job of developing a League position on where Skimmer techn0ology fit in its contests. A lot depends on the CAC chairman at any given time, and on getting the ARRL Board to give the CAC the right tasks to do.

I've given up with the league. My experience has been that  the "advisory" boards have 
virtually no influence on decisions that are made about contests or anything for that matter. 
That's why I stopped contributing to this "private club".

Thanks for the comments Ron.  For some reason I just can't think of how
in a 160 meter international contest that if you work KH6 you get no
additional  multiplier for working Guam, Wake Island, Swains, American
Samoa, Midway, Johnson, Kingman Reef, Kure Island!  These are all
separate entities over at the so call ARRL DXCC Desk but apparently not
at the "Contest Desk".

How does this make any sense?
