I don't understand. From my point of view, contesters should support
organizations which sponsor and support contesting. This takes a great
deal of work. There aren't that many. Contesting oriented magazines are
not a great profit makers. The least I can do here, for my competitive
hobby, is to subscribe to both CQ and to the NCJ.
I don't understand how people who are contesters actually are complaining
about the sponsors while not supporting these sponsoring organizations.
