Hi All, Personally I would be against this simply because in October /
November in this part of Western Europe our typical weather patterns mean
that you can easily have a whole weekend of gales so you get no 23cm /70cm
score at all. Believe me, Ive been operating this contest since it started
and we have had that happen more than once.
The ARI contest weekend here, Sept 28/29 was a complete wipeout , I got 4
hours of operation only. I suspect the PA, ON and N France guys would feel
the same. Two weekends means you have a good chance of avoiding that.
I have the feeling that there are more people operating both CW and
digital than there were, say 10 years ago, which is surely what we want to

I I just want to say that I agree with Lars that 1 contest weekend for
Digital and one for CW is preferred and that it is allowed to run the same
station both on CW and Digital. That would stimulate the activity on both
weekends for the Mode Category All and CW only. You could also have new
Mode Category "Digital only"!
