Earlier I attempted to make a posting on this subject, KA1LMR, and the
moderator, rightfully, killed it. I can be a little over-bearing at times. But
I did copy KA1LMR and received a reply.
Here is just a small portion of his defense: "" was not aware that self
spotting or a friend spotting was against contest rules ""
My 'knee-jerk' reaction was this: When you submit a log you agree to be bound
by the rules of the contest. Well I was wrong because we no longer do that. I
looked over my submission from the CW contest. With all our modern
sophistication, cabrillo etc, we no longer submit a document that certifies we
played by the rules.
For those of us who forgot here is what it used to look like:
""This is to certify that in this contest I have operated
my transmitter within the limitations of my license and have
observed fully the rules and regulations of the contest.""
It was referred to as a summary sheet.
I have first hand knowledge the ARRL is watching the KA1LMR story and hopefully
CQ & NCJ are also. I think we need to find a way somehow to include the old
summary sheet in our contest log submissions in the future.
