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?

I will have the monster anyenna up for the 10m contest this year. With the new sunspots slowly appearing I am expecting good openings similar to last weekend in the OCDXC.

Have fun
oh I like to operate whenever I can. CW, RTTY, SSB all good and fun modes. Antennas are up. SO2R interface works, rigs work, keyer works, computer works, internet works, even the amps when needed. It's all fun and nothing too serious.

This year we will be QRV again from LU8YE for another Multi-Single CW operation and a good friendship week with some tourist and gourmet time.

This year's big preparation is for CQWW SSB. Going to V31, need to allocate luggage weight among 4 travelers, final check on equipment, who brings what.
Look for V31MX, V31XZ, V31KK, 40m - 10m.
