Contesting Online Survey

Survey Question Current Survey Question

Recently the RDXC committee reclassified P3F to high power from low power without publicly providing strong evidence that any infraction had occurred. They concluded was that the contestant was running HP on 80/40m but not full-time, just 10 minutes here and there without any convincing evidence. It appears they used the RBN as their source of information. Should the RXDC contest have to publicly provide convincing evidence before reclassifying a station from LP to HP?

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?

Absolutely, as they are a great stimulant for contesting and less of a burn-out.

Family Friendly
The only contests I get to do these days are the Sprints. The most family friendly contest around! Let's have a couple more per year.

I only participate in the RTTY sprints. I would like to see more sprints added only if they were added on a weekday.

More Sprints
As a returning contester after 30 years absence, I love the Sprint format. The format is challenging without being exhausting. Let's have more!!
