Although not a rule, a return of the word integrity, would go a long way in
insuring a "play by the spirit/intent of the rules" attitude? Or as N2MG so
eloquently stated: "doing the right thing, even though no one is looking"!
As long as there is the "I have observed all competition rules for fair and
ethical operation, as well as regulations for Amateur Radio, in my country.

restrictions to be placed in any category?
Know/understand the rules! Play by the rules! No need for anything else?
