    Any chance one can provide feedback offline?

    I disqualify myself. I was unable to make any contacts on legal power.... It's always fun to try, just hasn't happened for me.

    Anything that may help participation, really. It’s been a great couple months for propagation, but even with the lengthy roster there were no logs submitted for a 2 month contest, at least it appears.

    Maybe open it up outside WWDX? Perhaps both allowing non-members to participate, and allowing contacts with non-contesters to count.

    Maybe less restrictive with specifying modes and or frequencies for certain days..and just leaving it up to the operator(s).

    Perhaps allow folks use their normal call sign, or even their “handle” on AM? I very rarely hear a WDX call sign...it’s been months actually since I last heard one. I imagine that some might not want to change the way they’re operating just for a contest.

    And I don’t know the answers, rather just brainstorming out loud. Had a few other ideas, but they’re escaping me at the moment. I’d just know I’d be more likely to participate if I felt others were.

    I was in the garage with the pickup in the driveway...heard you calling Ralph! But no, I didn’t make it out to the truck. You were booming though!

    Yeah, I see your point. I don’t care about winning anything either, but would be very happy to be a contact for someone that wanted to make an effort!
