As a Field Day enthusiast who has always gone peanut whistle remote in Class A or Class B, I really don't have any problem 
with Class D stations calling CQ. There is never a problem finding a run frequency in FD anyway, and the vast majority of FDers 
are those who *answer* contesters the rest of the year. Having more stations calling CQ is a plus for them, especially *loud* 
stations that *hear* well, and are good at running stations. 

But, if you are operating from home (actually, for any contester operating in FD) I think it is good form to spend some time 
S&Ping to answer CQs by portable FD operations where someone may be getting their first taste of running stations. Same 
thing in state QSO parties, really.
