I believe Paul ;)
If it be happened, R32F will be made more QSO then R33A
and made more difference on the final score.
Look at this:
R32F 100 RW1AC/RA1AIP R32F 3440 10617 144 242 386
4 098 162
R33A 86 ES5TV/ES2RR R33A 3453 10501 152 237 389
4 084 889
If the people on the WRTC compete for most high numbers of QSO, then all
those talks about
number of spots will make some kind of sense. The formula of this
competition are more complicated
and it's fine. R32F won the WRTC by got more point for QSO even lose the 3
And there is nothing about the spots.
