Should this be promoted?
It says not a Contest,  well,, yeah, but it's a slippery slope for 
sure.  First this,  then what,  I already hear grumblings from NON 
Contesters when a W1AW Portable station shows up on a WARC band or a 
rare DX where it sounds just like a contest with the giant pile ups.

Should the amateur population pressure folk like this to NOT do stuff 
like this?

I thought the WARC band were supposed to be free from this "CQ Nonsense" 
contest BS?
