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?

Survey Comments
It is in the rules
Item 5 under logging instructions in the 2006 rules states "By submitting a potential high-scoring log to the CQ WW Contest, the entrant agrees to have the log open to the public."

1 ARRL = 2 different rules?
For online logsearch it's forbidden to show date and time = ARRL says: you will lost your status for DXCC !

Here they show the logs - and without permisson of owner ?!

Contest log availability
IMHO all logs for all contests should be available for inspection. Might this give a competitor some advantage or insight into operational strategies? Perhaps, but log availability also tends to insure transparency of conduct in contest operation. In VHF contests the question of captive rovers has been discussed for a long time. Total log availability would put this argument to rest for good as, I am sure, it would for similar discussions in other contests.

It would be nice if the CQWW logs were available in a single zipped file. This would save the effort of manually downloading each file or having to write some code to harvest the files from the web site.
