KI5DR was one of the ops in the K5NA/M effort.
Apparently self spotting is allowed in the Texas QSO party - maybe
even encouraged. So this was not against the contest rules. I guess
Scott could have even done those spots logged in as as K5NA and not
broken the contest rules.
Had I know that self spotting was allowed I guess I would have
made sure the op at my station was doing it and I can only guess
that next year you will see *more* Texas QSO Party spots since
the rules allow for it. I keep thinking I will do this contest
one year - I see now I will need to make sure I that I get the contest
software that I use will spot my call and frequency every time I call CQ.
Just to be clear - I think the TQP leadership should seriously
reconsider allowing self spotting.
