In 2005 I went low power assisted in WPX CW - came 3rd in Europe and 4th in
the World with just a 42 metre long doublet (admittedly having my local
club's contest call of M2W - a unique prefix - helped, but probably not as
much as you'd think). Now, the reason I did that was because I was having a
fierce but friendly contest with a few pals to see who could work the most
DXCC over the year on HF in a low sunspot year. But I think I would just
about have scraped into the Top 10 in Europe and probably not been in the
Top 50 world wide without cluster. Got me a nice plaque.
Nearly all the best operators operate without cluster, which makes the
assisted category a lot less competitive.
