If it doesn't matter, why in the world would the rule be put in place? Somebody went to a lot of effort to insert the rule without CAC review and then refine the rule further this year. It appears to

Mike, You've already achieved 20 db over most of us to the south of you by being in VE9 land but if you want a better location and are unable to erect even a 40' tower for a beam, I vote for the 600'

Jim, A couple of years ago, someone put an idiotic rule into FD which says no "octopus" can be used at FD. This had to be a politically motivated rule which kills some aspects of innovation at FD (wh

Frank, It is very interesting that you didnt have any issues with the meat of my statement to Jim which is that the rule is idiotic in that it stifles innovation and is badly written. You even give t

Ed, Great point as to why have the rule at all! Another reason NOT to have the rule is because the rule, as written, actually outlaws a manual coax switch and hand signals coordinating an operation t

Charly, How bad is your current inter-rig QRM without filters? Your antenna location and direction may have more influence than a new filter. I'd borrow a filter (or set of filters) first and run som

Terry, It seems to me that WRTC competitors really wouldn't care so much about the "award" in any particular contest; they simply want the placement ranking to validate WRTC credits. Rule C clearly s

I understood that the deadline missed was the one for awards and not the deadline for contest entry. If my understanding of two different deadlines is wrong, I can peacefully crawl back into my hole.
