Dave, I guess I'm confused here. You say all the contest antenna 
stuff moved to Towertalk. If that's true then the whole of the 
subjects; contests, antennas; are still the sum of the two 
reflectors. It doesn't take any more time to subscribe to two or 
three reflectors than it does to one, if the subjects are split up 
like this. Try Towertalk in addition to Contest. I don't think you'll 
be overwhelmed with time requirements.

I realize that the above argument is a little specious; after all 
there are a few additional tower/antenna topics there than a 
contester may be interested in. However, would we want the Contest 
reflector cluttered up with a discussion of plastic owls for keeping 
sparrows off the elements? 

As I think of it, however, there aren't too many issues on Towertalk 
that aren't germaine to the contester. But there are several issues 
here that someone first putting up a tower/antenna might not be 
interested in. 

So I guess the way it's split makes more sense. Just use the <Delete> 
key a bit more on the other reflector.
