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?

Being Prepaired for new contest season
Living in a RV park with only a single 40' long wire up in an Inv L fashion (20' tall, 20' long) with 2 radials hidden underneath the RV, driven by a poorly aging IC-746 that sorta does 70 watts on a good day, thru a robust homebrew tuner isn't exactly what I would call "Contest Ready"... Anyone in Dallas/Fort Worth area have a station available during SS CW and SSB for a transplanted 7 lander? Please drop me a note at if you do. Thanks! Tim
