I suspect a "24 Hour" category would show very positive numbers initially. 
I'm doubtful there would be this sudden surge of "Casual Joe" type ops (they 
typically get on when they get on) but maybe a few would up their game.  In 
all likelihood the bulk of "24 Hour" entrants would come from "30-36 Hour" 
guys that dial it back.  Net result is less overall activity/QSOs.  But that 
may all be fine and good in the end.

Hi Mike

But, what if all the 24 hour guys operate the first 24 and then quit?  That 
would make for a boring weekend for the 48 hour guys.  73
