[CQ-Contest] Grid Square is the coolest exchange ever, after Sweepstakes

Every time I move, which is often, I have to find out what my grid square is 
so I can send it in some contest. Fortunately, that's only once a year, in 
the Stew Perry Top Band Distance Challenge.

It's hard enough for me to remember what U.S. state I am in, much less what 
grid square. I fear this grid square business is mind control, an attempt by 
Big Brother Contest to keep us in our place. I refuse to submit. As soon as 
I stop robotically sending NJ instead of WI, I'm outta here.

"I realized one reason why I really enjoy the Stew Perry TBDC 160 contest 
the VHF test is that the exchange is Grid Square. No useless RST, no 
unless you use history files and a challenging mix of numbers and letters - 
actually have to listen to what the other person sends.
