Sheesh.  We should be sending Thank You cards to these guys.  I don’t think any of them are contesters, and if something like that happened to me I’d be tempted to sit out the next few years and let everyone think about it.

Thankfully I think that attitude is very small in the contesting community.  At least I hope so.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Non-Contester's Experience from a Rare Mult in Sweepstakes

Thought I'd share the following message I received from a non-contester regarding his experience in the recent Sweepstakes Phone contest.

Despite adverse conditions and a storm that blew thru 2 weeks ago
taking down all antennas, I made an effort to get on. Not because I
like contests but because I know some folks like getting the Yukon or
'NT' mult. Parts of it were OK, but when a mega station comes on and
asks me to 'move' (apparently because my weaky watt 200w Plus and a
dipole arrangement is disturbing him on 20 and later 40, its a bit
rich. I guess the VY1! call is a threat to the big 'W'
stn...whatever. sorry to those of you who I was unable to work or
hear...the challenges or Aurora and North of 60 conditions
