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
