Mark, With all due respect, in the next 2 years do we expect the last 2 pages to also disappear?  Why not, at least then the attitude at QST will be so obvious it can't be ignored.  What will really be telling is if all of a sudden FT8 contests get multiple page spreads.  Then the cycle will be complete.

With all due respect, didn't this "contest coverage in QST" ship sail about 25 years ago?  ARRL has been cutting back contest coverage in QST page by page for more than two decades.  I'm thinking ... three decades?  What did we think was going to happen?  Is today a slow news day?  The world has not ended.  Today, there is more coverage than ever available faster than ever.  This internet thing may just catch on.

I do some authoring for QST and I appreciate the comments on the write-up itself.  Keep them coming, but all the talk about advertising revenue ... yawn.

Back to net.
