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?

Survey Comments
I have never been on a "DXpedition" as such,
but I did operate a few CQ-WW's from China.
In those days, China was not a whole lot better than some of the DXpeditions we see these days, and for sure worse than a bunch!

Early in 2001 I had the chance to join the Caribbean Contesting Consortium, the club that built PJ2T at the site of the old PJ9JT. I jumped at the chance. Worked tons of OT on a special project at work thru the summer, and having postponed vacation, I jumped at the chance to do 2001 CQWW CW. Wow! A great station, great guys, and for someone who S&P's with a modest 100w and a vert, running EU from PJ2T was an adrenalin rush and they had to pry me out of the chair when my shift was over. Going back for 2002.

I met Ernest J69AZ on 20 meters one night in 1999, and casually mentioned that I would be in St. Lucia in October. During one of many QSO's, Ernest asked if I would like to operate the CQWW while there as he was involved with a group setting up a station.
I had the chance to get about 6 hours in as a guest operator at J6R, and it was a ton of fun to be there.
I want to thank J69AZ, K7KL, N3NT, K3LP,and K3UG for asking me to join them. It was a rare oppertunity for me and one I'll never forget.
I'm heading for the South Pacific next year in the spring, and hope that I can operate from there.
