Jim -

The answer is simple:   The Contest Committee needs to start DQ'ing 
participants based on crappy CW signals - only then will the behavior change.

I assume when that happens, the Committee will publish quantitative criteria 
and digital recordings to back it up.   That will minimize the complaining 

Kudos to Randy and the CQWW Committee for finally having the balls to finally 
list disqualifications in a public manner.   It's about time.

Interestingly, over the last week I have read numerous posts from US contesters 
questioning the rationale for the TO7A disqualification.   These appear to be 
many of the same ops who have historically argued for keeping the SOAB and 
SOAB(A) categories separate.

I would keep in mind the easiest solution to the 'illegal Assistance' problem 
is to simple collapse the SOAB and SOAB (U) categories together.  Is that what 
you guys really want?   If not, I suggest you let the Committee do its job and 
offer them your full support.
