Hi all,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I talked to a local ham about this.
He said it was an international agreement not just the ARRL.
I for one will NOT be on 12m or17m for the contest.
I think we will be looking for trouble if we do.
I am not a big gun. I am running 20w to ground mounted vertical.
I hope to see all of u on 20m, 15m and 10m or early on 80m and 40m 06:00
I still need two hotdogs. KA3X and N3XC.
Where are u guys?????
Have a gud weekend cul.

own members Rich, W3ZJ, said it right--"There is enough space forcontesting
without infringing on the WARC bands. We can and should honor the originalone
big point going for it. It rules out the whole discussion of how muchdecision
to be made nor line to creep forward. More appropriate to answer may be,do
we want to be the one's who broke the 'agreement'?I've
just said. Yes, its how I truly feel and I thought that I would share itwith
