A comment on CQ WW contest catagories:
Why does using packet (Assisted Category) force one to enter high
power? I would think that packet and power are separate issues and
you should be able to enter Assisted Low Power All Band and not be
forced to be high power. I do believe it still goes to some trying to
exclude the use of technology assists of packet. BTW those same
people use master call data bases and sophisticated contest logging
