Reverse Class D exemption from Field Day

D stations do not receive credit for other D stations

as we seen in Haitai there was only one ham from his home that was able to provide emergency radio support, a perfect example

hams are not going to flock to remote locations when their families could possibly be in need, they will remain home

it makes no sense to deny any station the point for working another station, they have no advantage over any station on battery, mobile or emergency power in most cases

& by doing such we are excluding those such as the disabled/elderly etc that can only operate from home a fair score in this contest

I was about to create an online petition for us to sign & protest the ARRL to change its abnormal ideology of this

hams are not going to flock to remote locations when their families could possibly be in need, they will remain home

just as there is a conflict of individualism versus collectivism in this hobby & what the league tries to maintain
