I'm sorry Reg but I fail to comprehend how on the one hand you feel my
comments on the unilateral RSGB Contest Committee ban on ON4KST use is wearing
thin yet in your next sentence you write you don't like the rule either.
Also, if you're going to quote me then please note I also stated the
DX-Cluster and the killer M2 multiplier that puts the majority of the UK at a
disadvantage, thereby extinguishing interest the further out you get from the
South East of England in a UK Activity Contest. Therefore it has become an
England Activity Contest in reality.
There were more in favour of banning ON4KST its called Democracy! I dont
like it but you have to accept it!
> There were plenty as always from GM last night and Gordon MM0GPZ was
going great guns from the hills! So you point about lack of GM's on the band
lacks little evidence!
Hmmmmm..I never said ANYTHING about a lack of GM's on the band last night!
I certainly worked MM0GPZ/P, GM4JR and GM4AFF though I now know GM4DIJ and
GM8OEG were also active. Also GM6JTJ on a vertical as Dave's now given up
on 2m in favour of HF and sold his 2m yagi.
you did state its an ENGLISH contest!
If you're really looking for evidence Reg then please come back and report
here after the results are published and lets put your "plenty of
activity" comment to the test and lets see who is right or wrong. With hand on
heart GM4CXM considers that the Bolton Wireless Club will have more entries in
the 2m UKAC than the total of UK countries of Scotland, Northern Ireland
and Wales put together.
Bolton if my Geography is correct is in Northern England! Not SOUTH EAST!
If I am correct then don't EVER tell me and the other contesters here that
my complaints are "wearing thin" when I have the best interests of "ALL"
UK Countries VHF+ contesting and general activity at heart.

Yes Ray with Respect your comments are wearing thin. Whatever rules are in
place its hard to win from GM. Oh and yes I have been out /p in GM!. A
typical example is GM4ZUK Allan puts on a very competitive station but its rare
he wins. The fundamental problem is you will never please all the people
all of the time! I am just as hacked off about some of the rules but I just
get on with it!
My point was also nothing to do with ON4KST its was more about working
loads in io83,93 then almost nothing until the central belt of Scotland. A
large part of that falls under a banner called ENGLAND!
Theses are my own views and not those of the RSGB or any of its committees
