An answer was given to the contest reflector several days ago
concerning what counts for clubs by K3EST and later by N2AA. 

It is impossible to answer everyones questions in the magazine.
The rules are fully explained in the CQ WW HANDBOOK. If you have a
specific question call CQ and they will refer you to the right
source. Your question WILL be answered.

Billy Lunt came to me with an interesting question--what constitutes
an amateur band?   For instance, can I operate red and blue lasers
as separate bands?  I know that Al Ward is keeping two separate
DX records for the two wavelengths.  What about the red from a HE-NE
laser and the red from a semi-conductor laser?

I wonder if anyone has tried to claim 2.3 and 2.4 GHz as separate
bands?  How far must two frequency segments be separated to
constitute a separate band?

ALL QSL cards are answered at WA6SDM. Bureau is just fine. If your REALLY
want my card that bad, direct with an IRC will get it back direct. But,
hey, I guess someone might consider a W6 a rare one!

I'm in favor of continuing the practice of detailed score
postings/comments from any and all contests.  Perhaps the fact
that I don't pay per message has addled my mind, but the lengthy
score/comment postings are what I enjoy most.  They allow me to see
where my own efforts may have been lacking, and also tell me what kind
of stations [equipment/configuration/QTH] I'm competing against.  Keep
the scores coming!
