I am afraid that /R and /IM are not permitted by FCC rules because the
/R prefix belongs to Russia and the /IM prefix belongs to Italy.
Of course the very popular /M and /P calls are also not permitted by
the FCC for the same reason.
Nevertheless, the contest rules could never be adopted to require an ID
that is illegal by FCC definition.
