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
40 meters
40 meters during the CW portion was as good as I have ever seen it. Worked BY5CD for a new band country! I feel like a real contester/DXer now, having worked China on 40m. Heard 9M6NA both mornings but he couldn't hear me
:( Both nights the band was full of Eu stations that were easy to work. The other bands were in pretty good shape also.

Lowband Conditions
I was one of the ops at the PJ2T Multi-Multi, with W8WTS and W0CG operating on the 160 and 15 meter bands.

Conditions were worse on 160, which is how I rate conditions for the contest!
