The CR3L Team should reconsider their decision to change from M/2 to M/M. Their clear intent was to enter M/2 and posting their score on 3830 as such immediately following the CQWW CW is evidence they most likely complied with all applicable rules for a M/2 entry. It was only post-contest was it evident there was an opportunity to win M/M.
In my opinion, which seems to run with the majority based upon the dozens of comments made on this forum, the CR3L decision to change entry categories at the 11th hour, apparently to secure a winning score in the M/M entry class, is unsportsmanlike and offensive. The CR3L team deserves to bare the brunt of the nearly universal negative commentary having taken this action. Yes, what was done is allowed under the rules, but going down this path is well outside the spirit of fair competition.
I hope the CR3L team will reconsider what they have done and proceed to seek an administrative entry class change back to M/2 through negotiation with the CQ Contest Committee Chairman.
It is not to late to correct this wrong......it would be the class right thing to do under this circumstance.
