Excellent! Thanks Jan and Lars.

Fresh claimed scores is the most needed feature of contest organizing. Then adrenaline is still in veins and you remember the action. Compared to official results which quite often come out after 9-12 months, when you hardly remember last year's episode and your mind is already in the next race. 

I guess next step is to create a robot to also work the contest qsos :-) We just lay back and enjoy listening...
