I get the same feeling that integrity is gone.  Let me share an example
from the last WPX test, although minor, shows a disturbing mindset.  A
very well known VE contester was running on 20m well outside the US
band.  A US station called him outside his band and the VE station gave
him an exchange and continued.  I would have told the W station that he
was out of the band and that I can not work you here.  I also doubt it
very much that the VE contester didn't know what frequency he was on.
IMO I get the feeling that many, many rules are broken during any
contest ... it seems now to be a way of life.  As Mike says 'win at any


I'll run the race and I will never be the same again.

Integrity in the sport seems to be waning with an emphasis on winning at
any cost.
