When I started to advocate for a 24-hour category in CQWW, maybe 15 
years ago, I had to endure a scorching by K3EST at Dayton for even 
having the temerity to suggest such a thing.  Then a few years later 
K5ZD told me that they *had* been listening, and were introducing the 
Classic category.  I told him then, and I continue to believe, that 
there should be two 24-hour categories, Assisted and Unassisted, not one.
