Well put, I never had or saw a problem with W3LPL or N4WW 
just to name a couple of the guys on my "good guy" list both 
of which have run large multi operator operations now and in the
past. If they can do it, then certainly the other station owners 
can control their teams too.....if they want to.

Sort of non-contest question: Is Kenwood still operating their BBS?  Or are
they on the Net? If so, address, phone# please.

Well, illness, work and wife (in reverse order) consipired
to keep me from a full effort so I decided to see how well
I could do in 1/2 a contest. Worked 21 hours straight through
plus a few hours the next morning. Ran over my 24 hours by 10

  OFFICE MEMO         'Cut" Numbers (Again)                 Date: 

I have heard many DX stations use cut numbers, i.e. 599 09 = enn n.
But this last weekend I observed one prominent New England station
sending "ENN E" for 599 05. 

Isn't this taking it a bit far ? Granted, the station in question was
running at a very high rate (in fact he was sending it sooooo fast I had
to listen 10 times to understand what it was). Don't the East Coasters
have a big enough advantage already, particularly when there isn't a
good abbreviation for 04 or 03 for us living in [DX Contest]
propagationally challenged areas ?

Please forward your responses DIRECTLY to me via p00259 at psilink.com
for a summary.

Good conditions, especially Friday night.  Unfortunately QSK relay 
failed for 1.5 hours during peak run time Friday night.
Still, one heck of a good time!
