Dear Ria,

when talking about committee meeting... Maybe ARRL wants to re-think their club competition policy for the International DX Contests in regard to clubs outside USA/Canada.

I fully understand that it makes no sense to have a DX club competition listing for Sweepstakes or VHF contests or school roundups.

But for an international contest, it should be in the foremost interest of the ARRL to gain and keep INTERNATIONAL participants.

And the world does not end in the Caribbean. There are tons of operators on the other side of the pond, organized in numerous contest clubs, just waiting to get the battle started.

Many thanks.
