It seems to me that the Boys in Madeira (one of my all-time places, ever, to
visit - you need to see Funchal, all alit with Christmas lights) simply
out-operated, or perhaps had fewer Murphy's that the Curacao Crew. The
respective multipliers weren't even close.
Can the guys "change" their category post-contest, as long as all operations
were within the rules? Why not? What's so official about 3830? It's often
simply for bragging rights, and I don't remember ever reading someone
complaining that they were ahead of the No. 2...........
Having operated extensively from nearby 8P6, 9Y4, P40, YV, HC - I can
attest that throughout the years and solar cycles, that part of the world
from which PJ2T suffers, is second to none. They continue to excel most
every year - I doubt worrying too much about the guys up north in the snow,
or with aurora, or trying to solve Murphy all by themselves.
Don't get discouraged guys - trust me, during the next 8 years of lousy
conditions in the northern latitudes, you will again be No. 1. And I doubt
if you will be too concerned about the rest of us 'sufferers'.

Kelly, It's much more than just trying to gain an unfair advantage. Please
reread the the first paragraph which contains words like "respect ,
fairness, ethics and fellowship". But the last one is the most important
word - " sore loser "

A definition of poor sportsmanship in the link you provide is "…breaking
the rules to gain an unfair advantage."
What rules have been broken and what's the "unfair advantage" of a lowly
M2 station beating a MM?
