Hi Contesters....I sent this CORRECTION out from AOL over 24 hours ago, but
apparently it is lost in AOL-land somewhere.  Here it is again.  If you got
it, sorry for the repost...it never got back to me!

  Hi contesters....
  After the recent post on the reflector, suggesting that readers check out
the 1997 CQWW RULES and the comment about DUPLICATE CONTACTS, I received this
memo which I felt had wide applicability.  Here is the question and answer:

    I do have one query:  When operating multi-single I have found myself 
    infrequently in violation of the 10-minute rule.  My practice was to
    the offending QSO(s) from the log and then submit a "check log" of those 
    removed QSOs.   This was done primarily because I was lazy and wanted CT
    score the log.  Is that now prohibited as well?
   First, the CLEARLY MARK DUPLICATES is NOT a new rule!  It has been there
since the inception of the contest, but not too many people read the fine
print!  :-)
   As for the 10 minute rule, you can continue to do as you have been doing
and that will be completely acceptable.  As a possible alternative, and since
we now want your log in ASCII format-not a binary file, you **CAN** simply
EDIT those contacts yourself and leave them in the original IF YOU WANT TO.
 If you do, just make a note (via the edit function) that "this qso doesn't
count" or "ignore this qso" or something like that, AND, be sure to mark the
qso points as ZERO and to correct your page and grand totals for points, and,
of course, recalculate the final score.
   This is a GOOD question!
   Good Luck in the contest!
