> In the major contests, QSO rate is everything.
If rate is everything, then why would someone intentionally throw a curve to
unwary participants by giving an incorrect and incomplete exchange? The
rules say the exchange comprises the RS(T) and zone; not 'thank you' and
When the receiving operator doesn't hear what he/she expects to hear, it
causes disruption to the flow of operating--it doesn't matter if the logging
software automatically puts in a default RS(T).
I believe change should be sought administratively through means external to
the actual contest operation.
Why screw things up for others?
