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?

7 percent say they dont keep logs. WHY NOT? Do you qsl? Do you respond to QSLs? If not- Do you tell those with whom you QSO that you do not QSL? Why bother? It is the final courtesy of a QSO to QSL to those who send you one. I believe it was a mistake for the FCC to drop the logging requirement. What would you do if the FCC came in and asked if you were on the air on a certain date, and you couldnt prove you were not- as you have no logs for those times you were on? Its as much for our protection as it is for any other reason. Even mobile, you should at least keep the times/freqs when you came on the air, and when you qrt for that period.
