I have a serious question.  Do QSO Party's like this one fill a legitimate
need?  Do any of you operate them, other than feeling sorry for, and
answering the poor ___________ sending CQ's over and over with few answers?

Maybe we should have some contest reform to go with the budget reform and cut
out some of the fat.

I do participate in the California QSO Party.  When I was
in England, it was a good way for me to work on my Worked
All California Counties award, which took the better part
of four years to attain.  Our club makes a real effort to
get someone into each of the 58 California counties.  This
year I went to Mendocino county and wasn't lonesome at all.

If I did well enough, I'll get a wine glass and a bottle
of California wine to go with it.

As for calling CQ over and over with few answers, I think
there's a lot of that in the late part of many contests.

So you guys in New Hampshire go for it!  I'll work those
of you that I hear.

Actually, now that you mention it, exactly where are the limits of the DX
window.  We are planning to operate the CW contest this year for the first
time.  Since we plan to be quite loud, it would be nice to know what the
conventions are so we can stay out of the window.
