Is there any other sport where a competitor can start in one category, then in the middle of the race...or even after the race...change their entry category. 

I can't think of one, which seems to indicate such action is unsportsman-like at best.

If you do a spot check on CR3L on the DX Summit you will see they were never spotted on more than two bands at a time during the whole contest weekend. If they were really Mult-Multi wouldn't you think they would've been spotted more? Plus they had only 7 operators, which is about what they've had in past years when running M2X.

Now category switching isn't illegal in the rules but don't you think that integrity is on everyone's mind after what happened last year? Maybe it should be added to the rules just like having a bad or wide signal is.

Bad call CR3L team . Maybe you should provide an explanation like the one we were all waiting for from UT5UGR last year. Maybe you had a good reason for doing this?
