If you log a QSO with T0T on your forehead that might work, and it might
work for a few other magical callsigns, but most other forehead logging
entries would look like Cyrillic when viewed in a rearview mirror.
Best way for mobiles to hand out an occasional QSO in a serious contest,
as I see it, so as to not cause dupe difficulties to those contesters that
cannot tolerate same, might still be to pull off the side of the road and
keep a log with a Big Chief pad of paper and a bold #2 lead pencil.
Unless something of the such is done, the poor unfortunate duped contesters
will have to use the built in no-brainer features of their software to
correct for duplicate QSOs at the end of the contest, and that is really an
