So maybe we should all include "please spot me" in the voice/CW keyer
exchange message ;-)

I look at this fom the perspective of soliciting a Q as outlined in section
of the rules

"XV. Disqualification" . "The use of non-amateur means such as telephones,
telegrams, packet, etc., to solicit contacts or multipliers during the
contest is unsportsmanlike and the entry is subject to disqualification.
Actions and decisions of the WPX Contest Committee are official and final."
