Guys, where did you get the mistaken idea that I am trying to weight
contesters more than another group? The more informed input the better,
no matter what the source. I posted to the Contest reflector simply to
try to get more input. If there were such a thing as a 160 Ragchewer
reflector I would post there also. The only rule I am following is
one vote per person...no matter what their religious persuasion. In
general we have more DXers than Contesters on the Topband Reflector and
I'm trying to make sure we get a reasonably balanced input. I am not
posting to the DX reflector because I doubt that there are many 160 guys
there not also on Topband or CQ-Contest...and I don't think we need input
from folks who are not regular users of the band.
Input from everyone active on 160 is welcomed and counted equally! And
BTW, I made another mistake in my previous summary. We have 45+35=80
responses as of that post...not 70. Keep those responses coming!
