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!   Wink

I hereby vow to boycott every contest on 17m, criticize publicly any organization that sponsors a contest on 17m, and harpoon the reputation of any person who participates in a contest on 17m.

Line 'em up.

How about the inverse alternative?

You would be in agreement with all contesting being confined to only the 17 meter band?

I favor the FFF system of measurement.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FFF_system)

The 0.0845 furlong band, centered near 21.89 megacycles per microfortnight.
