Yea really...  The same big guns are going to win no matter what rule
changes are made...

Some of us are not even remotely concerned with winning...  We are only
concerned with having the maximum amount of fun possible...  i.e.
Broadcasting Live and Direct from a Caboose, Broadcasting Live and Direct
from a State Park, etc etc etc...

That, in and of itself, is the ONLY reason I do the ARRL January VHF, ARRL
September VHF, and the CQ WW VHF Contests; there are more people out there
than any other "normal" weekend...  Of course, I'm always out somewhere
for the ARRL June VHF Contest because it seems that during the day there's
either enough locals to work or the band is almost always open to

And don't forget about the Spring Sprint, SMIRK Contest, and Fall Sprint;
ya might actually work somebody other than the usual locals...
