Back when computerized logging was just emerging, Gene, W3ZZ, I and a few others were discussing it and the notion of computerized contesting. At one point Gene made the sage comment that a computerized contest station would be a lid and Vic, W4KFC, would beat it anyway.

While Vic is gone I’m firmly convinced the same is true today.

This is not new stuff, SV5KDL and others have been leading the pack in automated FT8, now FT4 contesting and DXing. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=ft8+robot&_sacat=0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byJyxYi4I8Q http://sv5dkl.blogspot.com/2017/12/sv5dkl-ft8-robot-fully-automatic.html Now you can enter any category you like and wonder if the guy that beat you was hooked up to a local skimmer, running high power with the new OM power amp combiner (hook up 2 X OM-4000), or out at dinner while the contest was on! 73, Bill KO7SS _______________________________________________ CQ-Contest mailing list CQ-Contest at contesting.com http://lists.contesting.com/mailman/listinfo/cq-contest
