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?

Recent Surveys

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?

Next survery
Good comments. In this day of "having
backups," it might be good to have two sets
of choices. After checking which amp is
primary, have a choice for backup. Tnx es 73s

Bought one of the last Ten-Tec Titan III A amps, with a pair of 4CX-800 tubes. It has about 10-15 hours and is covered when not in use.

Choices
Very sorry, the survey only allows a limited
number of choices.
I should have eliminated Yaesu and put in
Ameritron. Would have been nice to be able to
include Amp Supply, QRO, and Elecraft also.
My error.
The survey format may need to be revised to
include a greater number of choices.

Very Poor Survey Choices
Whoever complied the list of linear amplifier failed to list the most popular brand by far of currently made amplifiers, and outsells Alpha, Ten Tec and Acom combined. This "little amplifier manufacturer" is located in Mississippi and has ads in QST and CQ every month!

Additionally, Elecraft should also have been among among the list of amplifier brands.

Perhaps this survey should be started all over again from scratch because the way the current survey is compiled is showing grossly skewed results.
