This probably should be something for the contest committee to address. Due to politics and technology, contesting is changing. This is inevitable. Nevertheless, there are more fundamental questions

K2DB, I don?t know the rules of the BARTG contest. But, on principle, I say that yes -- you should have to walk, swim, levitate, fly, or whatever to operate from your station. There are some physical

My view was that "equipment" included anything used to convert a signal into what is heard by operator?s ear, or converted the operator?s volitional acts (e.g. taps, finger twitches, or spoken words)

Wouldn?t the "free square" approach be giving ops a mult (or four) for bands that they have never operated on, and never needed to even try to make Qs with others, thereby risking 0-pointers? 73, Dav

I have a slightly different perspective. Winners *need* second-rate operators and newbies. Even people that use their last two and spell out the name with double phonetics count for points (usually).
