.But what happens if you lose your packet link during the contest?
However, I still worry much more about people abusing the SO entry. I
know at least one 'serious' lowband contester around here who even does
self-spotting while still claiming to be unassisted. He told me that
you cannot control it anymore.
He might be right, someone could use my call in the packet cluster
during the contest. There are no passwords..
Remember, this hobby is still based on FAIR PLAY!
