Hmmmm. I seem to recall many complaints about beacons about 6 months after the band opened. Perhaps like "Blair's Babes" we need a little positive discrimination by the society to encourage people on the band. I enjoyed the recollections of Puckeridge in this months edition but publishing in August / September would have allowed anyone interested to tune into the band when it's in good shape and not encounter the high static levels of summer.
Beacons?  Well we've plenty of commercial signals with well documented levels.
Activity days?   That's a good non controversial idea.
Contests? I suspect that will cause QRM to weaker stations that the kWs can't hear. But there may be a formula that works over a limited period.
My 2 cents.......
