I've not got an axe to grind re RadCom, but is the lack of major construction projects in RadCom more to do with there being less people doing the larger scale design/construction projects as well as being motivated to write it up for RadCom?  Maybe it's also related to SMD and the increasing demise of discrete components that makes some potential authors feel that replication of designs will be more difficult and lead to a lot of subsequent correspondence. 
I have a feeling that many of the innovative designers are currently quite involved with projects such as the satellites/microwaves, with which David will be more familiar than I, and with with hardware/software projects.  With well supported Internet reflectors RadCom may not be see by those involved in these types of development as the ideal platform with which to publish their work. 
What I would like to see, and be prepared to support, is for those who have done some interesting construction or experimentation on 500kHz write it up for RadCom.  Whilst we are preparing for Agenda Item 1.23 at WRC-11 we need to raise awareness not only within the UK, but also with other National Societies, of the work and results that have been obtained on 500kHz.  Maintaining the 500kHz proposal on the agenda for the conference is not a certainty, so good quality publications relating to 500kHz experiments and operating in RadCom, QEX, CQ DL & CQ-QSO, etc, ought to be a priority.
