                    It's obvious Rich that you did not attend 
the Dayton contest forum a few years ago! It was there that a 
WELLKNOWN contester boldly said that he purposely made bogus 
packet spots in order to create a diversion for some other 
multiplier that he needed to work. This bogus spot on a rare 
mult would pull people off the semi rare station enabling him to 
work it faster. This is just one of the stunts some contesters 
will perform to keep ahead of the rest of them. Someone is 
always doing something devious. They'll do it till they get 
caught and then come up with some other way to "bend" the rules 
of ethical behavior. Welcome to contesting...

Subject: SOA
Message-ID: <Pine.SUN.3.91-FP.960929220236.17803G-100000 at>

As I recall, one reason for creating SOA was that packet had come on the 
scene (and even before that, 2M FM -- or other -- voice spotting nets), 
and the single operator who used one was put in the multi-single 
category, but generally was, of course, at a serious competitive 
disadvantage with "real" multi-singles, the kind who had two or more ops 
keeping their station on the air 48 hours, seriously working a second 
radio for mults, etc.  Whew, that previous sentence was too long!  In the 
multi-single operators listing for the station, these single op multis 
were listed as, for example, (KZ3XYZ + net).  There were so many of these 
in the listings it made sense (to me at least) to create a separate 
category for these guys.

Yes, many of them are casual ops who get on for a few hours.  They like 
to keep the packet on cuz it's fun.  They can see what their buddies are 
spotting, what bands their buddies are working, can T msg their buddies, 
and all sorts of things that are a fun cameraderie aspect to things -- 
akin to the cameraderie you get when you're operating at a multi-multi 
(or multi-single).  But some are very seriously going after it in the SOA 
category and work as hard at it as the most serious SOs; they just have 
an additional tool to use -- and has already been pointed out using that 
tool poorly can be more of a detriment to your score than a help.  While 
SOAs have that tool to use, they often have less tools to use in the 
antenna and tower department.  Why?  Because the "hallways at Dayton" rap 
is that SOA is not as cool somehow; hence the acknowledged top ops and 
top-ops-to-be with the big and biggest stations go SO.  And, SO is the 
traditional way to do it.  SOA is a johnny-come-lately thing.  I 
personally think contesters who've come into it during the Packetcluster 
era will be less likely to have the anti-SOA bias...more likely to take 
to it.

A clarification -- I've already gotten my first could-be-flame on this 
specific:  that SOA is a johnny-come-lately thing.

What I meant was that it may be viewed as that by some traditionalists.
Obviously it -IS- newer.  I personally do not view SOA as lesser than SO 
in any way.  I do think more of the biggest big guns go SO, which makes 
it the tougher category.  If the top tenners would all go SOA instead, 
SOA would be the tougher category.  I don't think SOA is inherently 
easier; it's just different -- the variables and inputs you work with are 
different and you have to deal with them well, just like in SO, or your 
score will not be optimized.

I'm told, by the way, one of the top SOs went SOA recently and didn't 
find it a cakewalk and didn't win.  It takes practice to do SOA well, 
just like it takes practice to do SO well.

JIDX is not a big contest however

Well, we had long discussion to reform the JIDX contest rule 
during '95. In JA land, the PacketCluster has been popular for 
DX spotting but not for contesting. Some of them do not care 
about the exact Sop regulation in CQ WW DX contest. 
We JIDX committee had the conclusions that any participants 
can use the PacketCluster during JIDX contest. 
This conclusion came from following reasons.
1. JIDX contest committee(now 6 log checkers) does not have 
   enough knowledge to check whether the oper use the PacketCluster 
   or other spotting net during the contest, 
2. If we prohibit to use the PacketCluster, a large number of 
   DXers will not be interested in the JIDX.

And I believe WAE-DC also allows spotting net during contest.

Are these the results for the 1996 IARU Contest, or the 1995 IARU 
Contest?  It's been so long since this contest I can't remember.

CQ-Contest at TGV.COM is a place for contest discussion.  3830 at
is the place for score reporting.  Please post your IARU contest scores
there.  Thanks for your cooperation.

Well, I have two daughters, Val and Tricia.  Our first-born was a boy who
only lived a couple of hours, and I DID inhale!

Does it count if Tricia is adopted?

Except they didn't out-fox you. You know something is up that is 
difficult to dismiss as mere coincidence.

Faugh! In every sport there are referees. No one likes them, but they are 
part of the game <grin>.

If something is amiss, you must act.

There's a *BIG* difference in the skills and style of operating between 
SO and SOA. Perhaps it doesn't make any difference at the highest end, 
but it does to the little pistols, especially those who DO NOT have 
packet. Remember that the little pistols are the meat and potatoes of 
contesting. Without them, 48 hour contests would be over in an hour.

Quietly recasting the log to SOA is a good idea. It sends a message to 
the originator without necessarily impinging his reputation. If you were 
to DQ him outright and he is actually innocent, you could unjustifiably 
impinge his reputation.

Furthermore, contest reporting (especially that for CQWW) has been shown 
to have numerous errors. Witness the contesters repeatedly reported in 
the wrong zone, or that have had their qualifying scores omitted from a 
top ops box.

A truely innocent individual could dismiss such a listing as erroneous

This would be cool, but may not be practical.

Bad idea. SOA appeals to a large segment of the casual contesting 
community. SOA was created so that such casual single operator efforts 
didn't have to be listed with M/S efforts. 

Further, SOA represents a different challenge to operating than SO. 
Having the different category presents an opportunity to develop new 
contesting skills.

>8) Work even more strongly to minimize this problem by making use of packet 
>in contests, by anyone, against the rules.

Outlaw packet and only outlaws will have packet. Packet is here to stay. 
Might as well get used to it.
