No.  He isn't.

Nobody governs the operations of my station except the 
FCC and the contest sponsor if, and when, I choose 
to "enter" the contest (i.e., submit a score).

If I turn on the radio and hear N4ZZ working the NAQP, 
I am under ZERO obligation to reduce my power to 100 
watts.  Similarly, in a strange quirk, if I'm not in 
the contest then I don't even have to cede my 
frequency in Sprint...
