[CQ-Contest] Competing in the Daylight

Sun Oct 9 18:59:28 EDT 2005

Can or could you add the technology of simultaneously displaying the Packet-Cluster spots so it would be easy to determine who was claiming single op but obviously stealing spots..??.. It is easy to see that Packet-Cluster cheating is rampant and is a real threat to honest contesting.

  This was exactly my point in the earlier posting.   I am a software engineer 
  by profession and I am
  responsible for providing the "push" infrastructure behind the the ESPN.com 
  web sites.   While I
  cannot disclose the actual capabilities of this system, I can assure you 
  that supporting the
  concurrent connections of all contesters and interested specators is easily 

  I'm not talking about a static web page that must be periodically refreshed.

  Opening up the UBN's/logs would be a step in the right direction IMHO, but 
  it would not stop the
  post contest 'massaging' of log data.

  I agree that knowing where your competitors stand would also have some 
  positive motivational side

  Now that I think of it, there are some parallels here with auto racing.   
  The 'car' being the station
  of course.

  >>This thread seems to be focusing on "releasing" logs
  after the event, for later scrutiny.  Why stop there?
  Why not "compete in the daylight" in the first place?
  Why not know your position against other competitors
  while the contest is still going on?<<

  Let's do the first step (publish logs), we been trying to get this for few
  years. Walk before you run!!!

  Compete in the daylight? What would that do?
  Like, when we compete, we take it easy, and then when we think someone is
  beating us, "we step on the gas"?
  So we will be watching how we do instead of running the contest?

  Not here, thank you! I want to prepare for contest (never enough time), 
  operating (seriously, or just hand out contacts), submit the log and (sooner
  or later) find out how I did.
