Here's my stance on awards such as DXCC and achieving them with digimodes
such as JT65. Honestly, they're only worth the amount of importance you put
into them. They're essentially made up radio points anyway. If DXCC means
SSB and CW only, good for you. If you're having fun working working DXCC
with the JTmodes, good for you. If you only count entities worked from
stations you've built, good for you. If you operate from large stations
that aren't your own under your call, good for you. Honestly, that piece of
paper means something different to everyone. Isn't the whole point of this
hobby just to enjoy getting on the air, make new friends, and pray that the
sun doesn't obliterate the ionosphere?
Just my $.02.
