This farce is made worse by the SO/Assisted section, where
the operator jumps to DX spots on the PCluster. When the DX station
knows he has been spotted he is tempted to run without ID:
(a) because he believes everyone knows it...
(b) so he can speed up his run rate by shortening up his default
This causes severe handicaps for SO/Unassisted (no packet) operators
- sometimes I wish the Assisted section had not been created.
BTW in the WPX CW last month, ZL1ANJ gave station call for every QSO
