No.  I'm proposing that the stronger stations make it possible for some of the
weaker ones to work EACH OTHER, which just might make it more likely some of
them will continue to participate in contests, and hence provide future
contacts for everyone.  Which would you prefer:  A nice clear frequency on
which to run all weekend at 30/hr, or half that much run time at 80/hr?  It
isn't other big guys who make possible those 100+ hours, and if contesting
isn't fun for the others, they won't be there.
