I believe that any 2nd tier contest (as is the WAE) should be 24 hours or
less in duration. (I would argue the ARRL DX is also 2nd tier BTW). I
consider myself a pretty avid contester. You aren't going to find many
people more pro-contest. So if I'm not going to operate 48 hours in a
2nd tier contest, who is? My contention is... not many.
I would also agree with G4BUO in regards to packet. I personally dont
believe that +Packet should NOT be the default single-op category for any
contest. If it is a category at all, it is in addition to SingleOp.
As far as QTCs... I find them a unique aspect of the contest.
Every contest should be unique. It works for me.
The DARC would do well to shorten the event and rid the single-ops of
