and demand the
arrl remove dxcc credit for anyone who has me as their only W!  I'll bet
that creates a big uproar.
  Ahhh haaa, my kind of devious mind...
  Well, the times they are a changing <quote> and something like LotW will 
become the standard within 5 years, or so...  The power of computers and 
instant world wide access through the internet has changed the ground rules, 
whether the ARRL recognizes this, or not...
  Once you have a 'LotW' like system in place, it is minor programming to have 
the software match that both stations submitted the QSO within some specified 
time period (say 10 minutes - with 'LotW' not showing the Q's until the 
submission time elapses) and give them credit for the country and count the 
countries, and grind out a DXCC award if indicated - within milliseconds...  At 
that point the ARRL DXCC becomes irrelevant...
