Ok Hans, now I understand what you mean.
That was not the point of my first message but yes I think SO2R should be in
another category than SO-Unassisted.
For me it's also a problem of the equipments involved.
In entering the contest with a 5000 $ radio (or two 2000$ radio plus filters,
switch-box...) you should not compete in the same category than people perhaps
playing with a used FT-747.
For the same reason you have different categories regarding power or you have
overlays for simple antennas and rookies or you have ranking for each
For 99% of the participants what is important in a contest is having fun.
Having to compete against stations too different is no fun. For the 1% who are
running for the victory, having them compared to much less doted stations is by
