Hi Contesters,

Appart from recent change to 48 hours in the worst possible time because of
the minimum of sun activity, WAE had few other unfortunate oversights!

Once upon a time USA states counted as mults (many W's are still giving 
their state as the part of report) and all you have to do was beaming NW!

They had high/low band categories and only tribander hams showed in high
class while low band activity was minimal!

However, I strongly support 4/3/2 mults structure as it is the only way 
to get people bellow 14 MHz!  I guess it has NOTHING TO DO with USA 
obsession with right & left coast!  WPX does the same.

After reading all the email about packet again, I still advocate free use 
of it as the means of technical support for single operator!
