K0CKB and I love the hectic clamor and excitement of a good contest, and
we're delighted that in our favorite contest (ARRL Nov SS) the logs are
still kept private.
We'll still participate in the hectic clamor of other contests, like CQWW,
but keeping our logs private is still an option even there. We'll just not
send them in.
