Guys I want to summarize the WA2FGK stationWe probably over the years spent 100 
grand on our stationI won countless contests, and have great memories.Never did 
I win a single dollar from ham radio.I did it for the love of the hobby.The 
downgrade of VHF contesting started when groups complained they could 
notcompete with the big multi op stations.The ARRL caved and created the 
limited category.What a great ideaLeave your microwave equipment off the 
air.Nice jobNow they know they have a problem with FT8 stopping band switching 
for 4  or 5 years.What have they done about that ? Nothing.To me it almost 
looks like they want to show less microwave activity, so the bands can besold 
to the highest bidder.It's your choice gents. Either stop complaining, or 
bombard them with non stop calls andE mails to your directors.I rest my 
caseHerb at WA2FGK
