[CQ-Contest] Contest Support

What I should also have added to my previous post is that there is an 
inherent fallacy in the argument that one should necessarily subscribe to CQ 
Magazine to feel justified in entering its contests. Taken to extremes this 
would mean that the active contester would have to join or subscribe to 
maybe 30 societies/magazines to be able to enter the full gamut of 
international and national contests. Clearly an absurdity.

And, as has been pointed out, in many emerging nations the funds simply do 
not exist. Would-be contesters, hopefully, can borrow a club station or the 
station of a wealthy (relatively) local or ex-pat, and submit by Internet 
from a local Internet cafe (usually freely available and not too expensive 
nowadays). But that's probably as far as their finances would allow.

'tis truly a dilemma!! Maybe we should sell TV rights to KC1XX and W3LPL 
during the "big ones" and all will be well!
