  Yes Mike, as a matter of fact ,it really DOES matter. If an 
agreement was reached by someone,a group,etc with someone 
else,some other group,etc., to keep contesting out of that 
portion of the band in order to keep non-contesters from 
bothering contesters and vice versa then it IS important to 
investigate what was agreed upon for our own benefit. You break 
a promise once and you may never be trusted again. Why keep 
giving the anti-contest crowd more fodder to use against us. 
Some of you have replied privately stating that you are not 
Gentlemen and will be calling there regardless. Why does this 
not surprise me? Arrogance and indifference breeds likewise. You 
can't just ignore agreements (if one indeed existed) just 
because something not to your liking transpired ex post facto. 
         This is a moot point until someone can come up with any 
facts about any agreement that was made, hence my original post. 
Many responses but nobody with the facts about such an 
agreement; only informing me that they plan on calling there 
anyway. I ask again; does anyone know if this is the case about 
28.300- 28.350 being off limits to contesting?    73 Ken KP4XS

I know I should be ashamed of myself, but , I can't seem to find out what 
my "CQ Zone" is. Can anyone offer some assistance or would happen to know 
"right-off-hand" what CQ Zone Irving, Texas is in? 

Thanks for the help,

God already created contest free zones. They are known as the WARC bands. 

I think it was a wise move too........

Hello all,

For what it's worth I agree with KA2AEV.  First, gentlemen's agreements
should be observed, and, yes there are people out there who are not
contesters.  :-(

One possible source of the agreement is 10 - X International which
strongly suggests that 28.3 - 28.35 be reserved for non-contesters during
the various 10 - X contests.  Seems like a very reasonable request to me
and one I observe.  (Does that make me a gentleman????)

I don't know if this is the only such agreement, but it's one I'm aware

Good luck to all in contest.  Hope we ALL are gentlemen!

Thanks to all the contesters who sent suggestions regarding the mobile logging
problem.  I guess I should have logged them as W9XXX/county... that seems to
be the most popular recommendation.

Thanks again, and see you in the contests! ... rich

Check this out and figure out your own Magnetic Declination, Deviation, Variation,

Personally, I prefer to find the north star (Polaris), sight it through my tower,
plant a stick and that's my n/s line. Fortunately, I only had to do this once,
since the house is oriented n/s (f/b) and the tower is at the back edge of the 
house: align the elements with the roof line.
