CQWW already has 48hrs rtty, 48hrs cw, and 48hrs ssb. all you have to
combine the scores into one. maybe rtty should be added to the overall
competition to give it a boost. this year was the first time we have
all 3 modes here and I think i like rtty the best.

Need a new challenge? Imagine a contest where objective is to Operate
FROM As Many Countries (or Zones, Islands, Grid Squares...) as possible
in the allotted time. This would certainly separate the truly weathy
from the wannabes. You wouldn't hear many people bragging about working
DXCC over that weekend, would you? How about a clean sweep? Brian/N0iMD

Dave - I think that's a great idea! Will probably stimulate more
activity into the RTTY contest. FYI, RTTY is part of the club
competition in the WAE contest.

Wow...years and years of debating the RULES and this guy can
state the whole thing in a couple of lines! Maybe we are all
just too close to it. de Doug KR2Q

Well, it is still in construction and I still am waiting for the second
roll of film to make it to Oregon, but there are some pictures of W5WMU
at http://www.axian.com/~tree/w5wmu.html for you to look at. Most of the
antennas are shown - the missing ones are on the other roll.
Happy Holidays and all the best in the new year!
