Operated about 3 hours and 45 minutes listening on 20, 40, and 80M CW for stations who were rookies or were sending CQ RR. Heard one S&P station on 40M and worked him by calling CQ R because he was only going to be S&P. From what I could hear, other non-rookie stations calling "CQ R" got answered only by other non-rookie stations. This was a big waste of time for me and others and was good only for those few Rookies participating.
I suggest that suggested frequencies be added, maybe for CW, 045 to 065 kHz on each band so the universe of frequencies can be reduced for those of us looking for Rookies and for the Rookies to know where to call. It also needs more publicity. Just putting it on the contest webpage and an occasional mention in QST isn't getting the job done.
73, John, K4BAI.
