I don't think so and I hope not!

If you follow the cq-contest reflector, you know of CQ’s conclusion that non-assisted operators no longer warrant full recognition as a standalone category their magazines’ WPX contest.


Using a non-scientific polling method (I copied what they sent me) I recorded the preferences of 1,338 stations in the recent two weekends of the ARRL SweepStakes competition.


827 (62%) of the respondents (those who sent me A, B, or Q) indicated that their preference is non-assisted operation. 

509 (38%) of the respondents (those who sent me U or M) indicated that their preference is to operate with assistance.


Do you suppose that ARRL ought to disestablish A, B, and Q, and push those 62% of their participants into U, a category they have so far chosen not to enter?
