Disqualification were for cheating, poor copying or excess dupes etc,
but "check logs" are different.
However, 76 check logs are unusual numbers out of 507 logs. It was 17%!!
On Phone AA DX
17 Check logs out of 434 logs and this is 3.9%.
In my humble opinion, all the reports sent and received must be clearly
write down on either logs or summary sheet. If the sent number which is
meanigless or not for scoring are omitted, the entrant must have caution
from the contest committee. But not to be disqualified. I guess the CT
has insufficient ability.
In JIDX contest committee;
There were several same logs (no sent numbers in their logs/summary
sheet) which were generated by CT. They will not be disqualified or be
in Checked-log but they will have the caution from the committee.
