I just received a email froma friend who was reading the yes pitiful self
spotting reports, spending the time to look and report these stations seems
just as pathetic or ridiculous as the self spotting it self in my view.
in any case heres part the email I sent to my friend after for the first
time hearing of this taddle tailing :
You are getting hammered on CQ-CONTEST for self-spotting.
I guess so, Yikes, This has never been brought to my attention before.
I do have a local ham friend that has put spots for me before he doesnt live
that far away.
But any case only strange thing is the IP number thats listed does not seem
to be mine at all, also A few those contest I operated portable with my
laptop from a totaly diffrent location and connection then my home computer.
In any case I didnt know we had guys with nothing better to do then go
sniffing for soemone putting self spots!
Apparently theres a watch dog for everything these days.
I am not sure of all the restrictions there is on self or a friend spotting,
but with guys nit picking and nothing better to do then snif and find some
thing to gripe about its no wonder why this country is becoming more and
more Socialistic one then democratic one! but, I guess this should come as
None the less thanks for the info and will try to fix it.
PS: I notice alot of stations ask the statsions they work to spot them over
and over I guess that really ought to be considered self spotting as well,
So apparentaly not your self , not a friend, or even some one you work
should spot you!? In that case why allow spotting at all!!?? maybe that would
make the the socialistic , "nothing better to do doers", P&Mers happy?!
