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!
