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?

My first CQWW
Hi there,

It was my first 48 hours contest, I never made it before, I usually made 4 or 6 hours, but never 48. That was my working condx:
160 M. Sloper
80 meters sloper
40 meters Rotatory Dipole
20 meters Optibeam OB-7 3
15 meters Optibeam OB-7-3
10 meters Optibeam OB-7-3
Ft-2000 and Win-test latest version.
Using a micro-keyer

I'm very happy, but I had a lot of QRM at home , my children was very noisy during the contest, and it was very difficult to hear low signal stations.

See you next year!!!

First night 80m was hard going and 160m deadly, but still fun. Heavy local QRN with l o n g static crashes made LF all bar impossible the second night in ZL.

15m made up for it though and when the 10m light flickered on, we went hard at it.
