I'm glad we're on the same page. That's what I wanted to hear ! Now, you
and I are united and hopefully we'll be able to pull more activity back to
SSB during CONTESTS where, during CONTESTS, rate is king (the idea is to
make as many Qs as possible, remember) and, during CONTESTS, the idea of
everyone on one 'channel', all 20 over 9, trashing each other, while 200+
kHz of the band goes unused, is idiotic.
Remember, this is the VHF CONTESTING reflector. My comments and
observations pertain to contest weekends. If it's not a contest day, do
whatever - that's why there are so many options.
