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?

Already taken down the 20 year old Mosley, cleaned up joints and attached new coax. Now still need to work on 80M dipole, and the 160M stuff.

New tower/yagi
After using wire antennas for the past 59 years, I am finally putting up a 45G tower and OptiBeam OB2-40 and OB16-3 yagi's. Will see how it goes!

Lots to do this summer!
Just moved last October too late to get anything up, other than a vertical.

Plan to:
- Add 48 ft tower with HF LPDA (20-10) and 6M beam.
- Add dipoles for 30, 40 and 80
- Modify existing 43ft vertical with band specific matching sections for 40, 80, 160 and 2200m
- More radials!
- Possibly second smaller tower for VHF array (2m EME/terrestrial array with elevation).

I've been waiting for this chance. So long condo!

I plan on taking mine down for the
winter...have some major building works planned
for the house. Probably wont have room for my
tower anymore....but I do plan on putting up a
Steppir vertical.

It wont be as good as my Mosley TA-33, but it
will be better than nothing!
