Please include!  If 160 is mostly unusable we are all at the same 
competitive disadvantage.  If we're deferring to mobile stations...i 
think I have 40+ states confirmed from there...granted most of them are 
in winter, but not all of them!  Expanding the tent (6 meters, digital?) 
makes the event more appealing, not less so!
