"While we're on QSO credit, contests and DXCC, has anybody proposed to the
League to give DXCC credit to QSOs based upon contest logs??? With log
checking software, the contest log checking software is indeed verifying
that a QSO took place between two stations on a certain mode and on a
certain date, and that the QSO time is within specified time ranges. The
contest branch and awards branch should work together to allow a station to
flag a QSO in a contest log for DXCC credit once the QSO been verified by
log checking software - with the appropriate paperless fee of course.....
Busted Qs, incorrect exchanges, NILs and unchecked calls are denied. I
would also deny uniques..."
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe one use to be able to get DXCC credit
for stations who turned in logs for any of the ARRL contests, at least in the
1970s. Not sure when this practice stopped...
It does seem like it's logical to do this, even more so today.
