Hi Dave,
I have found that virtually all contesting takes place in the General portion of the bands. Occasionally, if there is a lot of activity, you will find some people running just below the line. So yes, having an Extra means not having to worry about it at all. Congratulations! 73, Charles R. Tropp N2SO

 HI Guys,

I passed the Extra this morning, so no more concern about missing rare
mults out of my segment...

I'm curious.... Any idea about the impact on my contesting scores? How much
of an advantage is an extra over a General class in contesting?

I'm thrilled!
