On the contrary, the problem will be in getting participants to accept the idea - I am amazed at how many IOTA contest participants expect certificates (or even plaques) for "winning" their country o

Not all contest adjudicators rely 100% on automation. For CQWW it is understandable that they have gone this way, because the task is huge. With the IOTA contest, which I manage, we use automated che

Which may be true but won't be a win-win for ever, because the contest will eventually disppaear up its own orifices! There's a side to this which hasn't been explored. The fact is that contests do c

What I should also have added to my previous post is that there is an inherent fallacy in the argument that one should necessarily subscribe to CQ Magazine to feel justified in entering its contests.

Still wrong Ev. It all depends on which contest and which robot. There isn't some magic "robot in the sky". Every contest organiser has a different system. For the IOTA contest, for example, we certa

There are many portable rigs that would be more than adequate for single-op contesting in a DX environment. But there are far fewer rigs that would work if there were two or more of you trying to ope

A lot of the discussion here is missing the point. It's actually pretty easy these days, as a contest adjudicator, to see if anyone is using packet. Here's an example (and I'm currently completing ad

There's only one way to truly level the playing field and that's to sit all the ops at a computer and get them contesting with Morse Runner or whatever. No variability in antennas, take-off angle, te
