The Contest organisers making contest results a few weeks earlier to
members is trivial and should never had the bandwidth.
The peculiar thing I noted when I was batting in the smaller contests last
year, was the ONLY QSOparty in the USA to restrict international ham
participation is the NAQP (possibly the biggest !!) and a US based QRP
contest (forgot the name - but I had a ball across the Pacific). While I
was enthused to make a lot of calls in these in 2001, 2002 had me in the
garden - knowing my log submission for these 2 contests would be tossed in
It was my own fault for not reading these contest rules properly to begin
with, but at least it lets me understand what the Organisers really want,
and lets me make best use of my time.
We all play in a space bounded by rules- and half the challenge is working
out what they are.. and accepting them.
