CQ's 2000 Contest Survey

from John Dorr, K1AR on June 8, 2000
Add a comment about this article!

The time has come for yet another CQ Contest Survey. I started running these
surveys almost 10 years ago with incredibly interesting results. We've
learned a lot about each other and our views of contesting. One year, we even
took the pulse of our own operating integrity, resulting in a passing score
(although not perfect!).

As we are now finally in the new millennium, there's a lot to consider from a
contesting perspective. It begins by some of us wondering if this current
solar cycle is ham radio's last hurrah. Still others may be speculating about
the impact of the FCC's licensing restructuring on ham radio in general and
contesting in particular. No matter what topic interests you, there's
certainly something on your mind that many others are thinking about. A view
into what you're thinking about is what influences many of these surveys and
makes them so useful for driving fascinating dialog in contest circles.
So, with this as a backdrop, let's go right to the survey. I encourage you to
take a few minutes and voice your opinion. You'll find that in addition to
being published in CQ magazine, I'll be making this survey available on most
of the popular Internet e-mail reflectors and other electronic sources. Look
for additional announcements, as they become available. An electronic
response is preferred and can be sent directly to my e-mail address at Of course you can "snail mail" your replies in the
conventional manner as well to: John Dorr, K1AR, 2 Mitchell Pond Road,
Windham, NH 03087-1299.
