     The ARRLWeb has a short article about how the WRTC2006 rules have
been finalized.  Thanks to that article, I can follow a link to the 
official rules:  http://www.wrtc2006.com/ingles/ruleswrtc2006Vfinal.pdf  
(Thanks to thoughtless design, I still cannot access the actual WRTC web 
site directly, though.)

     Under Rule 8, it says: "We highly recommend the use of Writelog for 
all competitors."

     Can anyone expain why the organizers are recommending one particular 
product brand over another?  (Especially given that most WRTC 2002 teams 
chose not to use Writelog.)

     Can we look forward to future WRTCs recommending Yaesu transceivers 
or Heil headsets or N5RZ Brand t-shirts or whatever?
