Just my two cents (of Euro) on the subject.
A contest means competition. While competition is, unfortunately,
an unescapable aspect of the human being, I see no reasons to ignite
competition in what, up to now, seems to be one of the very few corners
left in the ham radio scenario where gentlemanship and reciprocal
courtesy still are prevalent.
You may call me an idealist. Yes, I am. And I know that idealists are
doomed to lose in the grand picture. But sometimes, outright reversing
what Macchiavelli wrote a few centuries ago, in a bad English translation,
"it's not the end result what counts, but the means used to achieve it".
