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
Conditions were tuff on Friday, little better Saturday, and better on Sunday from KS. I did notice an absense of JA's it seemed to me. I was looking FWD to a nice run of several hundred Q's from JA, but never heard much from there. Worked single OP assisted, high PWR, 1015 Q's and 950K points. Really had a good time.

This weekend condx
Worked as SOSB 20M HIGH. Using the FT-2000+KW with TH-11DX. 1177/673/1,184,800
Condx was terrible. NA do not open. Strong aurora during both days. Very deep QSB. Sure that UBN file was terrible as well.
Thanks to all for QSOs and patience.
