Except there is no evidence that there are "fewer and fewer contestants" in
HF contesting; quite the reverse actually.

We're not just seeing record scores and record participation in the big
international contests (although we are assuredly seeing that).  Even such
a venerable, old fashioned, quirky old nag as BERU is seeing participation
and scores breaking records year after year.

Relax.  We're not all doomed.  Now VHF contesting and DXing, *that's* a
part of amateur radio that is in some trouble.
