The concept includes simulation of surprise band openings, and QRN could =
also be simulated; in fact, QRN could be simulated in a balanced fashion =
with each participant receiving an equal share of the problems. It may =
even be possible to simulate limping to the finish line barefoot, but =
then where's the fun in that... And, of course, there's never really any =
chance that escape is possible from LID's. I am sure that cyberspace =
will fill to the brim with lesser operators just like the real world. =
No need to simulate LID's.
One advantage of the concept is that the fun of the contest could be =
increased by surprises never possible in the real world, like surprise =
location changes and surprise callsign changes. There would be no need =
to climb on an airplane to travel to PJ2. No TVI/RFI and angry =
neighbors. That would be a big surprise.
