As a Field Day enthusiast who has always gone peanut whistle remote in Class A
or Class B, I really don't have any problem
with Class D stations calling CQ. There is never a problem finding a run
frequency in FD anyway, and the vast majority of FDers
are those who *answer* contesters the rest of the year. Having more stations
calling CQ is a plus for them, especially *loud*
stations that *hear* well, and are good at running stations.
But, if you are operating from home (actually, for any contester operating in
FD) I think it is good form to spend some time
S&Ping to answer CQs by portable FD operations where someone may be getting
their first taste of running stations. Same
thing in state QSO parties, really.
