Um, OK. I understand that.
 Really, I do.  No need to send replies to the reflector, AND to  my personal 
The point I am making, is, I'm not bashing SO2R, I TOTALLY respect the  
skills required to achieve what these guys do. I DO NOT think it should be a  
separate class.
Having said that, if you read that at least, my deal is why not take away a  
tool that cheaters can use, and make it legal for everyone to use?  
-You can't stop post contest log "groomers"
-You can't stop power cheats, whether it is the QRP guy bumping the power  up 
a tad to "just bust the pileup" for a rare mult, or the guy that runs his  
FT-1000 at 200 watts in the LP class, to the guy who fudges a bit, and lets the 
Henry work its way up in HP class. Can't stop that.
--But, you can, however, totally stop packet cheaters. Make it OK for  
I have entered a bunch of contests assisted the past several years. I find  
it more enjoyable. Just as some find it enjoyable manually tuning around. And,  
that is fine with me.
But, if you don't like packet ( Hans ), don't use it.
