It is completely unnecessary for CQ or any contest sponsor to
release logs for every Tom, Dick and database compiler. There
are plenty of tools if they get off their fat, lazy, old asses
and make their own analysis of log submissions.
The ARRL DXCC program is the oldest and most widely followed
awards program in amateur radio. For a bunch of contest sponsors
to subvert the DXCC program because they do not what is necessary
to police their own contest is unacceptable. There is no excuse
for them to release logs and expect someone else to find and
prove any alleged cheating.
It's time for contest expert and ARRL New England Director,
K1KI to call for the DXCC Desk to enforce the rules and call
on CQ to stop making CQWW participants violate the DXCC Rules.
