HI Tom -

Perhaps we are going abt this all wrong?!?!?!? A rallying cry.....if you
are sick and tired of all the vanity callsign BS, please PSE send
private e-mail to the CQ-Contesting reflector co-ordinator <and/or
whoever else is in charge here!>. Maybe then it will end. Or perhaps we
should go the CQ-Contesting FAQ route and send the pertinent pieces to
the offending "vaniteer", ie:
> 1.04) Appropriate topics for discussion
>    * Contest Announcements: Must be true contests, not "operating events"
>      or "special events".
>    * Contester's shack (inside) hardware/software: Must be relevant to
>      CONTESTING, not just a discussion of bells and whistles that have
>      little or no application to contesting.
>    * Contester's outside shack (antennas/towers/coax/relays): Again, must
>      be RELEVANT to contesting.
>    * Contester's strategy: Before, during, after. How you planned/executed
>      your activities.
>    * Contester's skill: What you do that makes you good (or bad).
>    * Contester's stories: Must be directly about contesting.
>    * Contest ethics
>    * Contest rules
>    * Contest operators: who was where, who is good, who is an SK, etc.
