I HATE contests on 17 meters! I HATE contesters using 17 meters for their nasty stinky contests
I've never ever in my entire 24 years as a ham heard a contest on 17 meters, not even ONCE, and I've never SEEN or HEARD of a contest that allowed the use of any of the WARC bands. I've never even heard any credible evidence that any contester has even once used 17 meters! But howling about how much we hate contesting seems to be a VERY popular topic these days, so I'm going to join the others in decrying it. Even though it has never happened, I HATE contesting on 17 meters! Or, at least, I WILL hate it, if it ever happens!
