High-band; Low-band

No one in his right mind would urge that the
high-band (10-15-20) and low-band
(40-80-160) categories be reinstated 
AS ADDITIONS to the current single-band
scheme in ARRL DX.

So, it's either single bands, or high-band,

One ought not to assume 
blithely that the high-band, low-band
system would favor the "little guy."
It is perhaps more likely that a big-gun,
super-station guy who prefers not to put
in a full 48 hours, or who does not have
his entire setup of stacks completed or 
working, will dominate high-band
or low-band in a given geography.

While we're at it, does anyone know of a design to expand a
Cushcraft A4S to more than 3 elements per band?  We little
pistols have to start somewhere, you know.  8^{)

Ah yes, we have come full circle. Seems to me the triband categories
were dropped when the single band categories started. Some complained
that during high sunspots the high band class was a 48 hour contest and
some complained they couldn't have a decent antenna on 160, etc.

If only we could convince the JA 20 watt no code guys.

  We were delighted to work NM on 15 late on Sunday. It was the final
  US state, and after asking the guy to look out for us on 20, he
  worked us a couple hours later for all states on 20m too.
  Thanks to KA5TZJ if your listening!!!
  We had been watching 10m nearly all weekend, but we heard nothing.
  160m was disappointing the first night, but we got a short opening
  Sunday night, and a major pileup. 20m was too crowded to be able 
  to get a high rate..
  After the contest, I was speaking to TM1C. He didnt have all
  of his summary to hand, but he had 4610 Qso's and 241 mults, and
  he managed to work 8 stations on 10m in a very short opening at
  around 1640Z
  It looks like its back to the drawing board to beat this guy
  next year!

  We would like to hear from other European station, and swop some
  notes as it were - Anyone out there?
