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 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! 

73,  Bill  W4ZV  A 160 DXer, Contester and occasional ragchewer.
