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?

Santa gave me..
Yaesu Ft-1000MP MK V .. Al-1500Q ..
Santa was very good to us...
we must have been VERY good in 2000 !!!
Maybe it was because ....

1. We did not call the DX on his frequency when he was working split. Well, maybe once when we had the spilt set wrong.
2. Not once .. did we say " UP UP You Idiot !
He is working Split! ".. or send it on CW... "UP UP 2 LID"
3. We did NOT once tune up on the rare DX frequency.
4. We did NOT once, when there was a big pile up on the rare DX ask him to QSY to another band because we needed him on that band/mode.
5. We did NOT once, when hearing a pile up ask, "What is the DX call sign ?" on the DX frequency.
6 When the DX said "Europe ONLY!" we did NOT once call the DX. Also when he said "FOUR's ONLY" we did NOT call him.
7. When the pile up is big ...We did NOT call the rare DX and tell him " Mario you are just as strong as you were the six times we worked you last week"
Maybe that was why ....Santa was good to us.

Well, worldly treasures, I received none this Christmas. BUT, I did enjoy the get together of my entire family. To me, That's better than all the DX one could make in one lifetime! Happy Holidays and 73 for the new year, Larry

Two filters for my FT-1000MP. When I bought the rig, part of the sales pitch to my wife was that buying filters guaranteed more than a year of easy birthday and Christmas gifts!

A brand new Starband satellite internet setup, maybe now I can get those DX spots quicker!!
