Correction: 751. Some of the ones I counted - ARRL-SECTION for DX
stations other than "DX" - turn out to be paper logs that have been keyed
in by the good folks over at Contest Branch.
That's still only 29% per spec & that is just the summary sheet bits. The
robot is cutting us a lot of slack - me included. And this is a mainstream
ARRL contest - one of the ones that Cabrillo started out for.
Much of that invalid 71% can be deciphered, but it is interesting to see
what the word "must" (as in "For HF contests the operator-category must
be one of the following") apparently now means.
