What is worth mentioning this year may added a new rule.  

For Single Operator Assisted Only: The use of one and only one remote receiver located within 100 kilometers of the

main transmitter site is permitted, in addition to the receiver at the transmitter site. WebSDRs are OK, but must be located

within the 100-kilometer limit. The rule is designed to accommodate new technology, and for those who experience

high noise levels at the transmitting site. Anyone found using a remote receiver outside the limit will be subject to disqualification.

I think this rule is very beneficial for the hams whose base station are near the city.  Although it is only received, it can solve a big problem. 

Wish every competitions get high scores.
