Hi there I am Sean Lfeming if you don't know who I am. I am a memeber of a few ham radio clubs like most hams. I belong to contest club, regular radio club, DX club, etc. I myself like getting on the air and making contacts. Some of us also like chasing one thing or another wether it be countries for DXCC or IOTAs or even US Counties. So I am here to pose this question to the contesting community to get a sense of feeling as a newbie to contesting. I notice that most every state has thier own QSO party sposored by some club within the state. why is it not a good idea not to have an additional QSO party within the same state at a different part of the year? There are two NCJ QSO Parties. There is also Two Major DX Contests the ARRL and the CQ DX contest. Wish there were more personally. But point I make is can there be enough? if you listen on 7.230ish and on other nets people give US states and counties away daily as people mobile across our great land. So, I wonder why is it that we have problems with giving out these counties that so many people even dxers are looking to chase more than once a year. My question to you is would you be a participant to two state qso parties a year or not?  

I hope that my post is not taken by anyperson in a wrong way but I see there has be a disturbance in our community that has pushed out some intuitive people from enjoying thier hobby as we are already, I am just a observant person and looking for a solution and understanding.
