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?

10 meters
I was surprised at how clear and open the bands were. Didn't get that many QSO's but still surprised at the bands

Best in Nearly Two Decades
These were the best conditions since the last solar cycle. With my BTV5 vertical, no radials, and my new FTDX5000 I made contacts into the Middle East, Far Easy, Pacific Islands and Australia. All on 15m and 10m.

WoW. This was really fun!

Great opening on 10M to Eu and SA. 15 & 20M also

300 + contacts and 81 countries in about 6 hours

Great conditions on 10 meters helped me out a lot, as I was running 100 watts into a vertical!

10 meters
I was in heaven seeing all the new stations to
work constantly appearing on my band map. The
bands were so packed that many stations were
above 29000. This was the most fun I've had
contesting to date.

Even Tem meters was open. In fact it was my one of my most productive bands. Probably even better if I hadn't written 10m off when designing and installing my current antenna situation. I really didn't expect 10m to be as big a player as it was. I'll be better prepared next time. 73's Ed WD4ED
