A. #2 lives in W1. #1, #3 in CA. #2 beats both in a DX contest
B. #2 lives in AZ. #1, #3 in IL. #2 beats both in Sweepstakes
I hope everyone in this thread operates the NA Sprint coming up- that is a contest where assistance makes no difference!

You really need to compare the
1) A boy with Flex 6600,
KT36XA (tribander) and dipoles and/or Inv. L's
2) A boy
with Kenwood TS-830S, TA33jr at 40' and low dipoles.
3) Someone with multiple towers with mono-band
yagis on 40-10 meters and
maybe a 4 square
on 80 and a full size vertical or more on 160.
Of course #1
and #2 are close to being equal but neither of these are
close to #3. Maybe Google the calls that are
near the top in the weekly
and NAQP and you will find those who have the highest scores
have a station that would be more like #3.
But those that are stuck with
a station you
described for #1 and #2 are grouped into the same category
as #3. Is that really fair?
Bottom line is I think what
people are asking is that there should be a
tri-bander/wires category so those people in #1
and #2 don't have to
again #3. I guess I don't see what the big deal is to
add another category. Do you think it would
be fair for a F1 race car to
a NASCAR? It wouldn't even be close. You could use this
same analogy when comparing antennas.
