Hi Bob

Probably not having that call in my log won't make as much difference as him 
not having my call in his log if he is a 'big gun'.  I contest just for the 
fun, not to actually win anything.

If a station does this all the time, (not acknowledge your call) and 
everyone takes his call out of their log, maybe they would get the hint.

Nothing that I hate more than to send my call corrected and have the station 
come back "TU QRZ."

To each his own I suspect.  73
