Everyone on this reflector was warned, in spades, about the conflict 
on 7030-7040.  That area is RTTY in the Region 1 and Region 3 IARU 
bandplans.  When a domestic CW and international RTTY contest are 
scheduled on the same weekend conflict is unavoidable.  

Since the Region 1 and Region 3 allocations are much more restrictive  
that Region 2, the domestic CW contest should find other suggested 
frequencies.  7040-7065 or 7010-7035 are two reasonable areas ...
