[CQ-Contest] down sizing, anyone?

Why would I dismantle something that I had worked years to acquire, 
considering it would force me to suffer the head banging desensing that 
my earlier rigs had?  Especially if I intended to devote somewhat less 
time to the hobby as I got older and wanted to make the most out of 
whatever that was.

Your suggestion makes no sense to me.  I simply don't see the point of it.
