Hey Nate - You might want to check those logs again. In 2006, it looks  
like WY0X/r had 23 QSOs on 222 MHz and 20 on 1296 MHz. In 2007, you  
had 23 contacts on 222 MHz and 15 on 1296 MHz. Now the difference in  
QSO points makes the 1296 MHz QSOs more valuable, but it looks like  
the activity up there in Colorado is the roughly the same or a little  
more on 222 MHz as it is on 1296 MHz. And I suspect it is pretty much  
the same in most of  the US. - Duffey
