I think we need to publicize the Monthly Operating Event more than we do. Last night after K1Y was over, there were posts on the Yahoo reflector about dead bands. Well, they were dead .... I tried working the QRP Barbershop event and only heard a couple of stations.
But my point is that if propagation was existent that they should not have been dead (and maybe wouldn't have been!) I think the Monthly Operating Event should continue to be our prime ragchew event. This was supposed to be a monthly SKN for leisurely ragchews and relaxed operating, if I understood correctly.
While the calendar announcement is fine for all us SKCC members, I think we need to publicize it more to the "outside world". I'd be happy to use my NAQCC/Flying Pigs announcement list and do that, if it's okay with all you guys.
If we maintain that and cultivate it; then I don't so have any problem with the more competitive events that we seem to be starting to have interest in generating.
