Requiring K5NZ to enter M/M because of a couple of band-change mistakes is
ridiculous. Disqualify the Q's made during the illegal band change from NZ's
log and count them as valid in the other stations' logs. This is not a
legislated area, so the log checkers have discretion. I hope they do the right
thing. This is a ham radio activity being conducted for the benefit of the
participants, not a punitive bureaucratic process being conducted to trap the
unwary. ... I think.
