Flame on....

RTTY activity has dramatically increased in the past decade. Hasn't RTTY 
activity reached the point that the CQWW RTTY could have the same rules as the 
CQWW CW and SSB contests ?  Almost every weekend there is an 
everyone-works-everyone RTTY contest. Isn't it time for a world-class, 
everyone-works-only-DX RTTY contest ?  Until the CQWW RTTY adopts the same rules 
as its big brothers, it will be, in my mind, a poor cousin to the CQWW CW and 
CQWW SSB contests.
