Since I started this mess about passing through ARRL sections during a
contest, I must comment, especially if contradictory information is being
passed out.

A couple of days ago, Bill Lunt, KR1R, the ARRL Contest Director stated
that you may operate from as many ARRL sections as you wish. The only
constraint is you start your QSO numbering back at #1 when you cross a
section boundary.

Now W6PH says something totally different. Where does this information come
from? My info is from the League.

W6PH, can you explain where you found your interpretation of the rules?
