    Contesting is already limited from the WARC bands. Should there be contest free segments in the other bands? Simple yes or no poll.

    No, why the need to change from past and present practices? I don't participate in such contests, but I do enjoy listening some to the tremendous number of stations that do participate in such events. Makes me feel my antenna situation is not such a loss cause. :)

    OH, good gravy!!!

    Not another "I hate contests!!" thread.

    Give it up already. Nothing is wrong with the current situation, and no amount of on-line whining is going to change that.

    Period, end-of-story.

    I started the poll, and I'm pro-contesting. I got tired of hearing claims that the anti-contesters actually outnumber contesters so this poll should show the truth (either way). The poll results will determine if this is a pro-contesting or anti-contesting thread.

    I am not a contester but I am a DXer in training. I like contest because it sometimes gives me a chance to add another to my list. I now realize the hard part is getting confirmation. I can run to 17 if I get tired. Last night I heard a good number rag chews going on on 20, 40 and of course 80. I was on 160 about 10 minutes and heard a couple of rag chews going on. If the bands are quite then it is possible.

    I thought it was, "Put your Big Girl Panties on and deal with it!"

    I agree. Debating contesting is like debating abortion. If you don't like contesting, don't participate in one.

    Thing about contesters is, They have no common courtesy to those that aren't. I vote for limits on how much they can do.

    Interesting this discussion did not come up during/after the RDXC (last weekend) or during the ARRL CW test last month.
