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
Propagation here was about the same. This
year the main problem was the big thunder
storm over our heads all weekend long.
Otherwise low bands would have been super.
Only 200 Qs on 80.
In 2007 not a single cloud over all South
America. That made the difference.

Better this year on 80 and 40.
Worse this year on 15.

On the whole, about the same.

WW Conditions
Don't care. The contest is the same weekend every year, conditions the same for everyone, so it doesn't matter anyway.
