I concur with Tomi's assessment, many thanks to
Jan and Lars for their work.

On a related note, I am hoping that the system will
also entail the sending of a UBN report to each
contestant after the log checking has been done.
This happens for example in RDXC and CQWW, as we know,
but unfortunately I have repeatedly been asking for
such a report in vain from last year's SAC as a
preparation for this year's edition.

In any case, thanks again for all the hard work.

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

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