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?

Recent 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?

You left out the CQ 160 CW!
My favorite!

I do like CW Contest much more than SSB Contest.Because much less QRM and with my Low Power Station i have much more fun in CW.

cq ww cw
Being QRP (3w), cw is the only viable option. I make about 500 qso's each contest but never enter! Great fun, tnx to all the dx for hearing me.

SSB is just a shouting match. CW takes some packet doesn't seem as prevalent. de K7FR

SSB? What's that?
Hands down, the CQWW CW test is the best! SSB is fun, but scores much lower on the fun factor scale! de KL9A

ssb vs cw
SSB ain't so bad if you have a DVK, but nothing is like can fit so many signals into so little room, and they all stand out.

Posted by kr2q on May 25, 2000

Not fun? All that QRM? I must say I like both modes but SSB has some extra excitement. Assuming you operate from the right location, of course.

Posted by N5TJ on May 25, 2000

If I ever learn the code I might pick the CQ WW CW contest.
