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?

While I agree with the sentiment, I can't tell
if I've filled out the survey because I can't
actually read the survey - it's down!

Blame me. I was on the committee that reviewed the CQWW and recommended that SO and SO(A) be combined, as it is in the European contests and the RTTY contests.

I voted No
On the subject of allowing internet assistance in all
categories. Every single operator entrant has the choice
of assisted or not assisted. 2/3 of them chose
unassisted. Those are some pretty good survey results
right there.
