Let's determine how much time each operator spends in a 48-hour contest
transmitting his call:

ZD8Z 1,655*8000=13240 seconds = 3,68 hours

ZD8Z clone#1 1,655*4000=6620 seconds = 1,84 hours, i.e. saves 1,84 hours

ZD8Z clone#2 1,655*2667=4414 seconds = 1,23 hours, i.e. saves 2,45 hours

ZD8Z clone#3 1,655*2000=3310 seconds = 0,92 hours, i.e. saves 2,76 hours

ZD8Z clone#4 1,655*1600=2648 seconds = 0,74 hours, i.e. saves 2,94 hours

You're absolutely right! The solution is that everyone should behave like ZD8Z#N -- who only sends his call ONCE - right at the end of the contest.

Gosh, he'll save over 3 and a half hours of operating time. Wow! What a slick operator!
