Sorry, Pete, I'm going to have to take the other side on this one.  I don't 
like the implications of
requiring a recording with your entry. I'm certainly not against recording a 
contest, indeed it can
prove a useful and valuable tool for self-improvement.

But, contesting is an aspect of our hobby that relies on the personal integrity 
of each of us.  Yes,
there are those who will cheat, some will even get away with it.  I have to 
believe that most of us
do play by the rules.  Are we going to let a very few force the rest of us into 
a situation where we
become suspicious of every top scorer?  Isn't that a victory in itself for the 

Merry Christmas, everyone.  Thanks for all the QSO's this year!

73, Ted W4NZ

There's simply no reason not to require serious contenders for the top  ten
boxes to record their efforts.


And having done  so, we will then get excited about whether they will use
those recordings to  review questionable qsos, bringing about another whole 
of "cheating"  discussions.    :>)
