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
Not enough time to play
I did not have very much time to play, but found most of them on 20 meters Saturday night. I was more interested in working the prefixes on both CW and SSB. I missed OJ1N and OJ4W.

Just Moved
I just moved to a 2 acre lot next to the Carson River in Fallon NV. I was/am still assembling antennas and feedlines so I missed the opportunity to work the contest. Hope to be done soon!

Bagged 'em all!
I was only playing around in the contest - mostly to test some new equipment. I fired up the Internet spots and bagged all the OJs eventually. I had 48 of them on 20M CW. Much fewer on 20M SSB (around 6 or 8) and a few scattered around on 15M.
