For RYRY round up, sure. But not every ham has the equipment to run
RYRY. I don't. Why don't we focus on what happens in NAQP since that
is where the rule change took place.
Alternatively, we could delete other sections or states because of a
paucity of participation. According to the RTTY roundup results from
2016, there was only one log turned in from ME and one log from KP2.
There were two logs from NM which does not suffer the type of man-made
QRN associated with cities...
And, as it is, -you- only worked or heard one DC station....There was
more than one DC station active.
