Just like computer logging, memory keyers, Super Check Partial,
voice keyers, and the "arms race" with ever bigger antenna
systems and larger amplifiers have already ruined contesting, eh?
This is a technical activity and radiosport is a test of the *entire*
system - including all of the hardware, software and operator. If
you want a pure test of operators use a computer simulator with no
variability for radios, propagation, or location ... or put all of
the competitors in a 100 km^2 (10 x 10 km) area on flat ground with
multiband verticals, identical FT-101Bs and no computers.
Don't get "holier than thou" and decide what technology is "fair"
based on what you like/don't like or use/don't use.
