 >I believe that is what is at the heart of radio contesting, not just
winning, having fun striving, pushing yourself, and sometimes getting it
right. The more that technology is used to ease that operating part of
the contesters skill set the less attractive contesting will become.

         Will the number of existing contesters who become
disinterested be more or less than the number of new contesters
attracted?  In making any estimates, there is a known base of the
former and an unknown base of the latter to work 
with.  Ultimatelyfolks will vote with their feet, one way or the other.

         Since we now have at least three of the qualifying
contests for WRTC allowing Skimmer (WPX, IARU and WAE), I
wonder if WRTC itself will allow it?
