Is it time to totally reconsider the category system ?
Should a Multi Multi that is beaten by a Multi Single get kudo's for a first place ?
Should the Rules that govern contests change to - BEST wins regardless -
So for example - A QRP station beats all comers including SOAB HP unassisted - he takes the first place in QRP LP and HP ? After all it is the motor sport equivalent of a lawn mower powered go cart beating a NASCAR racer into first place.
Should Single op, single bands be split out of SOAB entries and also categorised as Single Band ie a SOAB who actually has the best 80M score wins the single band 80m category ?
What was done by CR3L is hardly cheating - they put forward their log into a category they could win.
The tip for the future is probably put your scores to 3830 and declare a Nonsensical category. Play your cards closer to your chest.
Many of the categories are catered for so that in the finest tradition of everyone gets a prize operators are encouraged - BUT as a competition are we really catering for best of the best ?
I think at this juncture we are not.
