Survey More Surveys
Randy, K5ZD, wrote a sidebar titled " Convergence and Change" in the 2015 CQWW CW printed results in CQ magazine. He wrote that the "convergence of personal computers, Internet access, DX clusters, and CW Skimmer have changed the nature of CW contesting". He goes to say that it is "more difficult to police the line between the single operator working alone and those who are using the assistance of DX spotting." In light of this convergence and change is it time to recombine SO and SOA into a single category?

A post-contest accuracy report for cluster spotting?
Operating with spotting assistance is not for everyone, but for those who use it, what do you think about there being a published "accuracy" report for spots made during contests?

WE9V's SO2R Station Everthing's within reach at Chad's SO2R station in Wisconsin. Main station is FT-1000 and AL-1500, while 2nd station is FT-920 and Swan Mk-II amp. Numerous homebrew gadgets are strewn about, including the Ten Pack SO2R antenna switching controller. Television helps the slow Midwest QSO rates pass quicker!
