Have to agree with the FT8 issues.  I actually love FT8.  It's great to work 
amazing range with a small station.  But it kills me to work S5 stations on 
FT8, after calling CQ on SSB with no takers...  I don't have an answer, but if 
you want to make contacts in this area, you better work FT8...
I hate to see the decline in multi ops as well.  It always seemed to me that 
the "big guns" with the CQ machines going boosted activity.  I know there 
seemed to be a big decline in this area when the W9ICE group disbanded.  Of 
course, I haven't been very active in the last few years either.
I'm hoping to make a comeback this year.  Although I may be doing more portable 
"grid expeditions" than actual Rover trips.

 Sadly, if we don't resolve the FT8 issue I'm not sure the rover count will
stay up either.
