Boy Phil I totally agree with you. In theory anyway.

During the last CQ WW SSB contest participants were operating all the way
down to 7.002 on 40M. I wrote to several people at CQ Magazine asking why
they did not voluntarily restrict the frequencies available for the contest.
This to me was the mot obvious way to solve the problem.

Only got one response, from some guy who was not at CQ Magazine. He said it
was not their business to police it, and those amateurs who operated down
there were legally operating under the rules of their country. I got no
official answer from CQ. Neither did anyone else I know who wrote to them.
Personally I think the most shameful of all are the American hams that get a
license from the country they are visiting so they can operate without
hinderance from those nasty sub-bands.

Maybe I should subscribe so I can pull my subscription in protest?
