and just skip ahead a few. Mostly 0 pointers anyway.
  I sure was feeling down about contesting until I
picked up the June QST. The January VHF SS had 134
W0 logs entered and the SSB SS had 128 W0 logs !!!!
This is amazing to me, and a very positive sign.
Maybe contesting isn't doomed, just CQ magazine's
contests. I think the WPX is the best example. The
tests are consistantly on Easter/Memorial Day long
weekends. Lots of 0 point Q's to be had. I think it
speaks volumes that only 10-15 W0's ever submit logs
for the WPX.

  On the lighter side, I was in Target in Minot on
Saturday, and at the next checkout line was none
other than Lt Kelly Flinn and her parents. My wife
confirmed the sighting.
