Thank you!  You've saved me the trouble.  Columns like WA50 are a
reflection of the submissions.

I was so excited about a big 144 MHz opening back in ... '10?  that I
sent in a list of calls and grids.  Got my call in the column, even!
:-)  I, for one, enjoy reading the column even if it is directed
mostly at 50 MHz.  Face it guys:  that's where most of the activity

And the bit about an article?  I don't know the current columnist
personally, but I would happily wager that he would make it the bulk
of his column one month.
