Is this about antenna height 20' is low for many antennas, or is it to keep someone from setting up the antenna at the edge of a cliff (must be at least 500' back from the edge?  (i.e., the Devil's point location the group used for Field day might be used but the antenna placed less optimally, or the top of a steep, pointed hill?

I understand the intent to try to level the playing field, but I'd 
suggest deleting the 20 feet above the average terrain restriction. 
The antenna and height restrictions are going to limit the number of 
stations that can be used, without an additional limitation. Let's 
just accept that some locations are going to be better than others 
and have fun.

When the rules are finalized, send me a copy so I can post them on 
the SCCC web site since this is an SCCC-sponsored contest.
