>From the 9M0C Webpage:

The group will not operate the ARRL CW contest this weekend. Rationale is
that they
would only work the big guns all over again and wish to focus instead on
giving out 
more "new ones", and on specialist bands/modes/short openings. 

The group will stay fully operational until around 0600z on Monday 23rd and will
keep 10MHz CW going until 2400z, just a few hours before the plane arrives
to take
them back to Sabah. 

My request:

Guys, PLEASE keep 1824.5 clear during 1130-1530 UTC of the ARRL contest.
They will only be on three more days, two of which are contest days.  PLEASE
don't CQ from 1824 to 1825 Saturday and Sunday mornings.  JA's:  PLEASE do
not QSX USA from 1824 to 1825.  I am a contester too, and owe many new ones due
to activity in the contests.  But let's keep clear of their frequency this
Thanks to everyone in advance for giving us one last chance before they leave.
