I disagree with this one. I believe that the ARRl
loves VHF more than anything else, as long as it is FM
Other than that, I couldn't agree more with your
statements. I feel the whole grid circling/capative
roving issue came up because one group, or maybe a
couple of groups, didn't win what they felt they
deserved to, so they had to start complaining and
Personally, I find nothing wrong with capative rovers
or grid circling. I go into each contest knowing that
I am not going to win based on geography alone. THere
is just no way that I can complete with the higher
density areas. Maybe those of us in less popluated
areas should get a special "lack of activity"
multiplier to even us out with 1 land.
