However I know there used to be expanded results articles online. Do those 
still exist? It used to be nice as it also had regional breakdowns - 
regional competition is good for those who aren't in Maine or otherwise 
operating from the East Coast. 

Yes, there are expanded results articles on-line for ARRL Contests at: 
http://www.arrl.org/contest-results-articles. One of the best examples is 
the November Sweepstakes SSB Contest articles by Bruce, AA5B, and Scott, 
K5TA, of Albuquerque NM. They are amazing articles with great analysis 
that are very useful in the following year's contest preparation. 

Bruce and Scott obviously devote many hours to this effort each year and 
those of us who care about that contest owe them a lot for their efforts! 

Frank makes a good point that the QST articles are a good place to attract 
new blood for contesting. They are like a fishing lure though. It takes 
follow-up from active contesters to help novice contesters enjoy the 
experience and want to return to the streams (contests). 

With limited editorial pages available, using them wisely is a key element 
of QST's management. There is no comparison between the ARRL DX CW Contest 
participation and Field Day regarding the number of participants. The 
latter is a great opportunity to move non-contesters in our direction, even 
though it's just an operating event--right.
