To avoid any misunderstanding, here are the three conditions.
1. The tools should not replace amateur-band RF in any part of
the signal path between the operators concerned - subject
only to the usual 500 metre radius circle / own property
limits for contesting,
2. The tools should not involve any use, during the contest,
of non-amateur-radio communications modes or technologies,
with the potential for, or for the purpose of, finding or
facilatating contest QSOs.
3. In CW contests, CW decoders (including Skimmer, with any
decoding facility enabled) should not be used. Why?
Because such use reduces CW to the status of just another
My question is - where, precisely, in any of these conditions
is there an explicit (or even an implicit) prohibition on SDRs
If there is, I will be happy to redraft the paragraph.
For clarification, the phrase "communications modes or
technologies" was intended to mean "communications modes
or communications technologies".
