I just hate putting anything into my log that I KNOW is not correct.
It also takes another round after getting a weak call for him to send
exchange...and it's usually these guys that send my call, their call and
exchange each 3 times at 10 WPM...and then add their family history! I
don't know how many times I've struggled with a weak station getting a
serial number correct...and THEN he corrects his call to one that is
already in my log...ARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!

P.S. On the second point, maybe I'm getting old but it seems the
of CW-sending hit an alltime low in this contest!
