This is very interesting for SSB contests. In the past few years the few big 
gun JA's have clogged the 3791-3805 segment and listen up. This makes it 
next to impossible for anyone to work any JA's other than those in the 
window. And, listening for JA's in the existing 3747-3754 sliver has never 
proved fruitful. It could be that few JA's have antennas tuned for that part 
of the band.

So, with these changes the question is -- how do we think operating might 
change? Any JA's out there who can comment? The key seems to be that JA's 
need to put up antennas that can transmit in these new segments and then use 
them. Operation can then be simplex or split depending on exact conditions 
and frequencies.

Thoughts and comments?
