Can anyone recommend a good source or couple of sources of wisdom on pileup
management, as distinct from techniques for cracking a pileup (for the
pilees, not the pilers-on, if you get my drift)?  I have seen isolated
messages from time to time with good dope, but am not aware that this advice
has been collected anywhere.  As last weekend amply demonstrated, there's a
need to spread the word, which these reflectors do very well indeed.  If
there's no pre-existing source, I'd be glad to collect everyone's wisdom by
direct e-mail and synthesize it into a coherent summary, maybe for NCJ, the
DX Mag, CQ-Contest or wherever (in addition to the reflectors).

In Europe everybody went wild over KG4MN in the contest. I have him as zone
04 in my log (Tenn? Ala ??). Am I wrong? Is he in Guantanamo bay?

Hmmmmmm ..... well, if you copied Zone 4 ... then isn't that what you are
required to put in your log?  I can understand if the logging program makes
an error and identifies him as USA (rather than Gitmo Bay) .... but if the
receiving operator actually copied Zone 4 .... (or was too lazy to actually
"complete" the QSO)....

Put another way .... just how much of the QSO exchange are we supposed to
be reponsible for ... and how much can we claim that it was "the computer
logging program's fault)??

PS:  I have the highest, highest regard for the orginal poster of the query
... but the matter of whether or not we as Ops are responsible for the
validity of the QSO data was the point.   No flame at all is intended.  Got
