Let me see now:
I have heard QSOs on nets where one station plainly cannot
hear the other. They guess the RST (three tries) and they
get a card. The ARRL counts these.
A well-known QSL manager doesn't check cards against logs.
The ARRL has accepted thousands of cards from this person.
I have a card for a QSO which was not made with a station
which was probably not in the country (hint: Where for
art thou). The ARRL would accept this card for DXCC.
I have a blank signed QSL from a country in Asia that I
have not worked on 80 meters.
And then there are all the DXers with 3CX3000A7's or 4x1's
run like sweep tubes.
But I'm a contester. I know it is possible to cheat and I
even know people who do (or did). But I don't care. I
operate contests because OPERATING CONTESTS IS FUN.
Can we go back to talking about contests now?
