What?  Another RTTY contest on the first weekend of February?  This is
starting to become pretty impossible.  

Also, I am probably not the best one to approach the FOCers about this.

I am skeptical about moving the CW Sprint just so we can QRM a different 
RTTY contest AND the FOCers to boot.

I am pretty amazed that there are two "international" RTTY contests on
consecutive weekends.  I think this needs to be fixed before any other
solutions can be explored.
