While I'm sure Tom typed this in jest, I, for one would LOVE to see a
bunch of those fully automated CW contest machines on the band !!!

We can all sit there and feed 'em a bunch of broken calls so they all
get DQ'ed !!   Cool.....

After looking at the desirable calls issued in the  0 district it is very   
easy to see that indeed the Electronic Filers got processed first.  I   
guess the FCC has a different definition of RANDOM than the rest of us.

I stayed away from the electronic filing because it was "NEW".  I figured   
it would be the most likely point of failure.  I don't appreciate being   
told one thing and having something totally opposite occur.  I hope that   
the ARRL will look into this situation.

I like the call that I got, but I sure would have liked to have an equal   
chance at K0AA or K0DX.  This may sound like sour grapes but I think in   
the Country where ALL men are created equal this is a joke.

This is just my opinion.
