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?

One Volkswagen
If you add up the numbers posted by N1UR, a serious contester with a terrific station, you'll see that his investment is about equal to the cost of one Volkswagen. As hobbies go, ours is not that expensive.

I'll talk.

I have about $5k on the shack desk (no amplifiers here). About $7k in antennas. About $7,500 in towers.
$2000 in Rotors. And $7,500 in hardline, control cable, coax and wire.
