Everyone know that a lot of people during contest do not respect power limit.And i think there are difference if you use 500w,1.5kw or 5kw so why have only 2 category?

Oh boy, I've got to bite my tongue here. Hmmm... probably because *5kw* isn't legal here in the states.

YMMV... a lot ;)

yes i know that over 1.5kw is italy we are illegal for less,but not all think in the same way.
And we know that there are really people that work with 5 or more kw.I belive that this happened less in us than in other country, but it happened.
The restrinction in number of rtx and power is to let people to work with same(not identical) "weapons" but many(i underscore many)om work with more than 1.5kw and thare are no way to let them reduce for this reason not all the people that are classified in HP category had worked really in the same category!

It is probably not a good idea to promote an operating category for illegal power output.

If people operate beyond what the rules specify, they're only fooling themselves. And will hopefully one day be caught.

The best way to handle this is via the contest rules.
Anything over the legal limit in the country of operation gets a multiplier of 0. Any power level at or under the legal max gets a multiplier of 1. (Or more depending on the power breakdown for the contest)
This way, the 5KW stations can operate as much as they want and their score will be what they deserve.
