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 did well on 20 and 80. Never expected 10 to be open so did not try there. Filters, DSP, and a quiet loop helped.

40 and 80 at the times I was on were terrible. At my QTH the noise level was 20 over most of the time on these two bands. 15 was a pleasant surprise, nice and quiet. Too bad there weren't more contacts availagle. Nothing at all on 10 for me.
Thanks to all that contacted me.
