That's my point - when you do something to
change the nature of an activity, it becomes
a different activity with a different name.

Why then do so many use the internet while
contesting, a fundamentally different activity
from amateur radio?  Sure, they're still in
the communications business, but it's not
amateur radio communications.

And yes, they do work other stations using
amateur-band RF.  But, it's a contest and
how you find those stations matters.

Reminds me of crossword enthusiasts who
use an electronic solver - they can always
claim they filled in the squares all by
