C'mon, it's not like there's contests 24/7 on every frequency. What do you do when the band is closed due to the sun? Blame it on the contestors? Adapt, overcome and achieve that's what needs to be done. After all radio is "supposed" to be a challenge. Being inflexible and/or unwilling to adapt or change how things are done is what's hurting this net more than anything else. I think the author of Pogo once said something about this sort of thing before. There's been plenty of alternative detour routes, options, solutions and good suggestions already mentioned to address the issue. ...Only if someone would listen to them.
