Heah, I look forward to seeing you in the ten meter contest, too! 

The more you contest the better your cw will get...improving cw is only done
through its usage - and what more fun way to work on your cw skills than
operate a contest - it is almost painless - and you get the positive
re-inforcement of a QSO in the contest to boot!

oh yeah, there is the CQ WW CW at the end of the month, too!

See you on for the ten meter contest for sure, eh?

Not all the OOs out there know how to measure frequency correctly.  A couple of 
years ago I received a report from an OO for being out of the band on CW during 
the WW contest.  He didn't give a number, just said he could hear my beat note 
on 6999 kHz with no other information.  I would believe an FCC pink slip and 
question the validity of an OO report.

When checking SSB near the band edge, the receiver or spectrum analyzer filter 
bandwidth also must be considered.

Don't know if it's still in effect, but years ago a person could be 
disqualified in a contest if he received 2 OO reports.  That tended to keep the 
band edges open.
