wow, what an attitude, unbelievable.
and this "firend" who does not live that far away happens to live so close
that knows exactly what states are still missing. I guess he is trying to be
always on the same frequency as LMR with his receiver and he is running
identical log and entering stations to see what mults are still missing and
diligently enters spots time after time with that info. He also makes it a
habit to enter spots under LMR callsing for other stations on other
frequencies but to S&P he uses another radio - he is a SO2R guy - because he
always has to have 1st radio exactly on LMR frequency to be able to
replicate the log.
What a great way for him to spend a weekend and what a nuisence he is by
creating all this mess and casting shadow of cheating to a completely
I truely wish you strength and success in "fixing this" and shutting this
troublesome guy down.
And I completely agree that in a truelly democratic country everybody should
be allowed to selfspot and all contests should have no rules at all not to
limit the freedom and basic human rights! Actually next time I recommend you
take a callbook and list 10 000 stations from there into your log as I am
not sure there are any restrictions on that and most of the guys are doing
this anyway. I hope the Contest Committee would not go as pathetic or
ridiculous to start nit picking about that.
