I wondered if some people weren't relying on on MASTER.DAT as I moved 
back to Kansas from Oklahoma about 2 months ago.  This was my first 
SS, or any other contest, from Kansas and I had some that asked my 
section a couple of times and one that seemed to want to argue that 
it should be OK instead of KS!  I found this rather amusing to say 
the least.

> U log what U hear - not what is in master.dta 

Precisely, except that my code ability is none to great but adequate 
enough to allow me to work a few Q's in SS and Field Day every year.

Just like taking a test, changed answers are often changed wrong.

Hi Folks

I'm posting this to the reflector to see if others have had the same

I e-mailed my CQWW SSB log to the CQWW address as stated.  I received a
conformation of receipt.  I then received a pass-word that would allow me to go
and view my log as it was received.  Well, here is where the problem is.  I
can't read my log.

It was sent in as an ASCII attachment, both the log and the summary.  When
viewed it looks like like it is encoded.

Is the attachement the problem???  Should  the log and summary have been put in
the body of the message rather than as attachments??

I have asked this question to the questions at cqww.com address but have not
received a reply.

Any hints??
