[CQ-Contest] Proposal to reduce "mirroring" of CT country and master database files

Hello all,

In the past, I have uploaded the CT database files (country, section, 
master callsign) to various places on the Internet, including VE7TCP 
(gone), jzap.com, and the DX-BBS (telephone).  I have had so many headaches 
trying to upload the files to the CT BBS that unless I'm in Matt's shack, I 
won't bother.

So here's my question:

If I were to just keep www.k1ea.com web site, and the 
ct-user-REQUEST at contesting.com E-mail site updated, would this satisfy 
everyone?  In other words, is having the data on a telephone BBS somewhere 
still necessary for people?  I'm sure I'm asking the wrong crowd, since you 
all have Internet access by definition, but I thought I would give it a shot.

Please reply to me directly if you have any comments, pro- or con-.  I'd 
like to try to reduce the amount of work it is to disseminate the data, and 
also make sure that the most current data shows up everywhere it is 
supposed to.

Thanks & 73 - Jim AD1C
