[CQ-Contest] CR3L Should Reconsider Submission Catagory

I can't either figure out why such vitreous objections all based on
speculation. Very few facts have emerged and coupled with much speculation
has created the 'typical' ham radio lynch mob. Guilty before the trial has
And then the debate between rules and ethics. Oh, in this case ethics
should trump the rules where in the assisted/unassisted debate rules should
trump ethics. Seems this quote applies to these whiners: "what difference
does it make?"
I wasn't born in Saskatchewan, but I got here as soon as I could.
I simply can't, for the life of me, figure out what so many are objecting
The jump to MM can't have been a guaranteed win, since how do we know all
the scores had been reported to 3830? Maybe one or more MM was staying
silent about their results.
Does anyone know for certain if the team didn't discover some aspect of its
operations disqualified it from M2?
Is there a requirement that stations MUST maximize their category to qualify
for it? If I want to enter UH in SS because that local record is vulnerable,
do I have to run 1,500 watts? Do I have to run 1,000 watts? 100? What if I
want to enter U but have no access to the Internet?
These folks may well have intended to be M2, and then realized their score
was competitive in MM and changed. So what? Seems to me the question isn't
whether it's sleazy, it's why did the mighty MM stations allow themselves to
lose to a puny little M2?
Why is it sleazy to RAISE the bar? Sure, if they actually operated as MM and
entered as M2, that's both sleazy and illegal. If someone enters SS as A but
was using their Alpha throughout and watching for spots, that's sleazy and
All this seems to me to echo the advice from VE4VV (SK) when we first
started contesting together and 3830 actually was on 3830: keep your fool
Seems to me the smart teams from here out will stay away from reporting
scores other than to the sponsor in an official entry.

>> Not really. Proportionality only makes sense if you are comparing
identical stations- equipment, skills, teams, etc. CR3L has demonstrated
that you can do more with less. In the extreme example, a SOAB station can
qualify as M/M.

many operators, low vs. high power, etc.), not minimum.
