With all due respect, Dave, but if you made even a single contact in the
contest with high power, you you should claim your category High Power. If
your buddy visited you during the contest and made a single contact while
you went to toilet, it is Multi Operator category.
Since frequencies in Yuri's log were recorded, contest sponsor could mark
contacts "outside the allowed frequency" as zero point ones. People who
worked him lose nothing, who loses is just him. IMHO this approach would be
better than DQing!
