  I just want to mention a couple of clear rule
violations that were occuring this

A)  The rules state that 28300 to 28350 is a
"no-contest" area, yet the segment
was loaded with DX stations calling CQ contest.   They
did not get an answer
from K3MM this past weekend.  Hey, I think it's a
stupid rule...but rules are

  I agree with Ty that this is a stupid rule but I 
wouldn't DQ any of the stations (mostly DX) that
violated it. If you are, then DQ all the people that 
ignore the DX window during the 160 contest.

  I have a feeling that the ARRL created this rule
to appease the small but vocal group of people that
don't like contests.
