And only generals can participate in this contest? I haven't noticed
contest activity staying out of the Extra subbands in any other contest.
There is no reason that Sprint activity couldn't start at 7035 and move
down ... still enough room for General/Advanced to QSY between QSOs.

That is fortunate ... but no excuse for the sponsors to crash another
contest. Particularly when as noted previously it is the #2 most active
RTTY event ... rather like the IARL (or DARC, RSGB, JARL - pick one)
deciding to sponsor an SSTV contest in the middle of ARRL DX Phone.
