The idea of forwarding to CA was to avoid loses. That was my first thought 
about reports of logs failing to arrive. Was a check of the second repository 
made ?

I have been lucky so far, but I make sure that as I close a contest the file 
is sent to ARRL within a few minutes, then transferred into the word 
processor where is is sent in an e-mail as text, attached as a text file, and 
FAX'd to ARRL.

I always felt most confident in the FAX but always got e-mail confirmations 
from Billy in short order.

I am not sure that mail is being opened at ARRL as fast as it had been. I 
have heard several complaints of lost items in both contesting and DX areas 
that are merely not opened yet. Unfortunately some are an embarrassing 3 
months old.
