I guess most of advertising I see an invitation to buy without the ability to
test unless you commit. Sort of like the dating game.  But I think you might
have lost the sight of the forest for the trees. It seems to me it will be might
be more difficult to find a contest web cam in the infinite bandwidth of the
internet than a cw signal in the bottom 100 KHz of  20m. When I am contesting I
only have time to scan the bands and not the internet too. If a web cam station
happens to pick up a couple of Qs at my expense but at the same time educate a
wider audience about the wonders of amateur radio I am more than willing to pay
the price.

could  loss some valuable points and VE5 is sometimes a difficult multiplier to
find. The transmission actually was

"uh K4OJ your 59 Saskatchewan, nice imagination but  what was the  your logic
behind  your web cam comments on the cq-contest reflector?
