Hi Don. 
You are right on the money with this posting!  I am on the VE team here 
and we don't administer more than 4 or 5 cw tests a year over 5 wpm.  
Once they get on 10 meters and the sunspots come back, that's where they 
will stay. If contesters want to work the novices and tech pluss', thats 
where we will have to go. 73
