Mid June sometimes I turn on 6m and find a contest going on, so I pass out a
few points. Then it starts to rain and I stay on and play some on 2m and
70cm. I send a log in and get a certificate. I didn't mean to, but I
accidentally became a 'serious' entrant. Should I be denied a certificate
because I didn't record the whole contest? I probably wouldn't even have
sent in a log except I fired up the logging computer just to have packet,
but that's a whole different thread.
