A few more great reasons why you should do the IARU HF Contest ---

- You get a good night's sleep before the contest, and come out charged, ready
to go 24 hours without sleep.

- You have all day Sunday to recuperate.

- Lots of CW activity.

- It's only 24 hours, so W2UP and others who insist on a life besides
contesting should like it.

- You can be competitive from the Black Hole:
  - EU is only a few zones, rather than 50+ countries.  This reduces the east
       coast advantage.
  - Every random USA QSO is worth something - 1 or 3 points.
  - QRN makes 80 and 160 marginal bands for everyone.  Another equalizer (sorry
     to use that word, JD).

I'll avoid the usual "please work me" commercial.
