In addition, for those running less than 100W, a contest is like a 1kW 
linear amplifier.

For me, JT65 is king outside of contests. It's the only mode where I can 
multitask like N6MJ. :^)

> It's simple economics to me. Why should I spend months or years to gather up countries for Honor Roll, when I can operate a contest and get multiple band DXCC and usually snag several ATNOs in a single weekend? That gives me much more time for other hobbies, and is much more efficient use of my time!
