Wow...talk about a wake-up call as to really how narrow a niche the 
Contesting Community is within Amateur Radio as a whole!

I'll bet many of the log submitters in these various major contests would 
be "Dupes" (i.e., they show up in the same events).

If someone were to come up with a condensed list of the actual individual 
"unqiue" players (callsigns) from these collective events as a percentage 
of the respective event domestic and Internationally licensed operators, 
this might be even more insightful as to the future.

Yup, we gotta keep makin' hay and having Contesting Fun while the sun still 
shines (and there are still enough players on the gameboard).

Tnx for the enlightening info, Bob.
