In Part 5 of the "Why I do Radiosport" series, I described how I use E-E-G monitoring to improve
my radiosport performance. Is using Neurofeedback "Cheating within the Rules"?
Technically, neurofeedback is not all that different from focus-Meditation, along the lines of Za-Zen.
I am hardly the first radiosport operator to sit some sort of meditation before taking on an operating shift. Are we cheating within the rules?

Is "artificial" cheating?

To what degree can we attribute this success to running an FT-920 transceiver into a 3-element
wire yagi 20mh? (Adding more variety, WQ6X then put 150+ 75-m Ssb QSOs in the log.) I only remember that I did all this; I don't remember the details.
me is no guarantee it is good for you. Remember: any/all diet introductions should be monitored
by health care professionals.
Certain Lo-impact movement exercises quietly channel oxygenated blood through my system;
most importantly to the pre-frontal areas of my brain. When the front of the brain is purposefully activated, one's ability to focus and hyper-focus is dramatically improved.
Is the use of Light-sound before/during/after a radiosport event "cheating within the rules"?
In recent years we have seen the emergence of alleged brain-enhancement supplements that promise improved memory and or enhanced stamina. Is use of such supplements "cheating
within the rules"? What about mega-doses of B-Vitamins, such as B-1, B-6, B-12 and Niacin?
Bottom-line: It's easy to label any idea that is new to you as cheating - only because you have not thought of it before. Before you trash an idea as cheating, how about taking a close look at it first. You may be able to utilize the idea to your advantage and/or modify it to suit your needs.
What about YOU?
Have YOU cheated within the rules?
How did it turn out?
