The  "basic" class would be a single transceiver with not more 
than 100 watts  output and single element antennas (e.g., dipoles 
not more than 50' above  ground and single verticals).  These 
limits are consistent with deed  or zoning restricted situations 
and allow new contesters a place to start  without getting run 
over by the big antennas and SO2R operations.   Once a contester 
decides to "upgrade" the decision regarding the best bang  for 
the buck (moderate antennas, big antennas, SO2R, all of the 
above)  is up to the individual. 

Agree wholeheartedly!
