Dear Contest Directors Everywhere: After losing 20 minutes at the beginning trying to figure out what was keeping my receiving the RTTY sigs to decode....Was fun for a while but 15m could not hold its own for me. KI6RRN worked me and moved me to 10m and I parked for a couple of minutes and picked up a TX stn and N4ZZ on 10m but after full 8 min. of zippo, I went to a fairly quiet (no sigs 15m) From that point I felt I was chasing the unwashed - signals fading and when I would send NAME NAME NAME NAME only to have stations resend mycall / their call / fading to nothing ... wanted to scream but wait you can't do that on RTTY. Was not fun for me. Seems this is an SO2R contest (as are lots of them in the NAQPs) I looked at the first 20 contestants in SOAB LP and that is what they are ---- SO2Rs. So those of us down the ladder,operating as Hiram had imagined, fall in at places - 40something on down. That is the answer to "where our contesting game is headed - SO2X, remote stations" while the rest of us provide the bottom feeding points. Next Contest Forum(s) just copy and paste these past two lines to answer: "...what the hell is going on with contest interest???...." Thanks to all those SOAB LP non-SO2Rs who participated and perhaps when we are all gone, we'll reorganize our own REAL Single-Station Single-Receiving Contest with a black list of all the past SO2Rs of the past. Get me my ladder so I can get off this SoapBox please. WN6K, Paul
