I have no problems with enforcement of the rules, but, random visits, to  
personal property, that's crossing the line in my very humble  opinion.   I 
would no doubt take a DQ, than to let a stranger in my  home, unannounced.  
And, I have nothing to hide. There is NO honor, or  glory in winning by 
cheating.  I experinced this in the past with drag  racing, and with racing 
motocross.  I can't compete with cheaters, and it  they beat be ( known 
cheaters), it's no big deal. I know I was clean, and I damn  near beat them.

We in our no-monetary-prize environment are not alone.
In the world of tournament bridge - another no-prize-money competition -  
last year it was deemed necessary to prohibit not only the use of, but  also 
possession of, cell phones and the like in or near the playing  areas.  The 
chance of an unethical competitor passing unauthorized  information to a 
friend or teammate was considered too high.
In a recent national tournament in Washington DC, a team was penalized  for 
a violation (probably inadvertent) of this, for which the penalty  (think 5 
mults in radio terms) was more than their final margin of  defeat.
Stamp collectors need to be very concerned about cheating - as in fraud,  
forgeries, etc.

Random  station Inspections ..... for a hobby?
Granted  it's a bit more than stamp  collecting, but it isn't in the
same  class as NASCAR or Olympic class  sports with endorsements,  etc.
Well, not to the vast majority of the   participants.
