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?

As a participant, and a winner, other than a plaque, are Certificates of Merit, given by most contest sponsors, important to you?

Survey Comments
The final courtesy?
Certainly the real thrill is in the journey - but I think everyone likes to see that they did well enough to earn an award, even if it is "just" for winning their section or whatever.

Certificates
With nearly forty years of hamming, I enjoy sponsoring them
as well as winning them.

Maybe I mis-understood the question
I have a box full of awards that have been in the same box for 5 years (good intentions and all). *To me* they aren't all that important (though I'll be tickled pink some day when I finally get my USCA-3077 ribbon). However, if a certificate of merit means someone who would not normally get on the air *will* get on the air and hand out a few contacts, then I guess it's important.
