I just hope that authorizing the use of sub-receivers this does not mean that those with more technical knowledge or money are the only ones who can access them and that large differences between stations are given due to this reason


Several months ago I asked on the forum if it was not possible that the organizers providing Teams with all filters and switch antenna, thus we know that everyone will use the same, in addition to lighten the luggage of equipment


So all the teams are equal and NASA engineers do not appear with their exotic boxes

Asunto: [WRTC2018] Competition rules




there have been some very good comments and arguments regarding our question on WRTC 2018 competition rules. We appreciate the input and the discussion!


There were also questions with regard to the technical feasibility of our potential proposals, i.e. on 160m operation as well as the referees observing the subreceivers. We have started an evaluation of both aspects which is still ongoing. It seems that both aspects (160m operation as well as subreceivers) are technically feasible. The detailed evaluation is not yet finished and obviously there are disadvantages with both approaches. The addition of a subreceiver would assume that the referee in the tent could only check samples of the audiostream. We could add technical means such as recordings or SDRs to compensate that partly, but obviously it would come with some significant change of philosophy. The 160m operation is possible with shortened dipoles. In our trials we have seen decent 160m QSO-rates with loaded dipoles and 100 Watt here in M/Europe. So we believe that subreceivers as well as 160m operation would technically be possible, but coming with an expense. The open question remains: Are we willing to accept these expenses ?


Thanks and vy 73
