<< Doug, W4OX asked a question about mobile (/M) and maritime mobile (/MM)
stations and how to log them correctly such that these don't show up and
English countries. He correctly identifies how this problem occurs - the
question is how to deal with it.
From one viewpoint, why log the /M at all? We had a number of cases at
WP3X where a station would show up as /M one time and not /M another. Does
it really matter? >>
YES, it does. In VHF contests it is very common to work a station from his
home QTH and also when he is mobile. Both are perfectly valid contacts. In
most VHF contests, I work about 5% of the operators both fixed and mobile.
This also happens occasionally in HF contests such as Sweepstakes.
