I think that by submitting the log you consent to the log being made
public. And by not submitting your log you are not giving your
I think open logs are great. I have only looked at a few. I do not
see how publishing the logs assumes that everyone or anyone is
cheating. If anything it opens up the entire log checking process a
bit more - by allowing anyone to look at the logs and even do their
own log checking if they desire.
I rarely look at anyones logs but I will willing share my logs with
anyone. I only wish the ARRL would follow CQ's lead with open logs.
If anyone wants to see my sweepstakes logs - just ask. Or any
recordings I have made of a contest - even more useful and interesting
that the log.
