In the light of recent skimmer debate I want to arrange a short poll to understand how entrants interpret the current CQWW rules (http://www.cqww.com/CQWW-Rules-2010.pdf)

The question is:

In your interpretation, do the current CQWW rules allow for Multi Op and SOA categories to use RBN (to log into Reverse Beacon Network to receive call/frequency information as identified by many aggregated remote receivers scattered globally and decoded with skimmer software) or any other remote skimmer (single or network, personal or not)?

Please tell:

C. The Rules are not clear

If your answer is different for Multi Op vs SOA please tell
If your answer is different for RBN vs one's personal remote skimmer set up anywhere in the world, please tell

You can send to me direct and I will summarize. Please tell how you interpret rules not what you think the rules should be.

I think this is a very serious issue and the CQWW CW is approaching fast.
