The problem with the RTTY guys taking break time during the Sprint 
peak time on 40 is that it is also during some of the best hours 
for NA to EU on 40.  Further the RTTY WPX rules provide double points 
for 160/80/40 Meter QSOs thus the push on 40.

There seems to be interest in updating some other issues with 
the CQ/RJ RTTY WPX.  Perhaps the sponsors can work out an 
agreement with the XE guys to exchange weekends (less RTTY 
activity in the XE and no premium for low band QSOs) as part 
of the changes.  If that happens, do you think the Sprints can 
be defined based on "full weekend" rather than "first/second 
"Sunday UTC" to avoid a periodic clash?
