"There are several other steps I think we can take to improve the situation both during these special 
operating events and in general. 

Make sure that all event promotions include and emphasizes the MB-10 dB operating level. 
Include EIRP based power categories in the scoring. You get more of the behavior that is rewarded. Those 
stations operating correctly need to be recognized and rewarded. 
Don't always answer the strongest station that calls. Especially if the station is clearly operating with 
excessive power."

The ARRL field day have in the past observers who randomly watches the band (our club has been once CHECK 
LOG)  Is it possible to have observers who can monitor MD signal and at the same time comparing various 
signal with MB? Implementing a penalty points systems making the closest your are from MD the more points you 
loose. As the police radar penalty points the tickets are supposed to have a deterrent effect and the fine 
attached to it helps to funds lawn enforcement agencies

Can this fine system be applied to help funding AMSAT...! (Joke) Luc Leblanc VE2DWE (AMSAT 33583)
