I'll agree that someone in a foreign country using a contest callsign
they don't deserve is probably beyond the ARRL's horizon of
responsibility to monitor, but I don't need to be able to program a
traffic light to recognize when someone runs a red light. Besides, the
ARRL certainly pays extremely close attention to such matters for DXCC
Just to be clear, my impression of the ARRL's handling of contest
controversy was developed over recent years and has nothing to do with
CT1EAT's post other than it being a trigger point for my comments.
