[CQ-Contest] [Gmc] CQ contest submission deadline getting shorter....

Such a short deadline assumes, for example, (1) that every contest
expedition will have functioning internet access; (2) that every contestant
will be able to stay focused on the contest and not be drawn back into some
hectic work-travel schedule.

I am all for a shorter timeline - but I agree with KF0UR about at least
have it include the next week-end.

Plus - a 7 day multiple makes the deadline easier to calculate and
remember.  Here in Colorado, our Supreme Court just changed all the court
deadlines to multiples of 7 days - - for exactly that reason.
