If you find an error, please contact me at n1nd at arrl.org or by phone at
860-594-0232.  If your entry is missing, please forward a copy of the email
receipt you received back in your message to me and I will check into it.
If your entry was sent via postal service, you will need to check with the
postal service first, as all entries received by that means are on the list.

A couple of problems continue to creep in from submissions. One stems from
entries being marked as categories that do not exist for the contest.  This
year we received entries for SCHOOL CLUB, MULTI-LIMITED QRP, ROVERS,
claimed "MULTI-LIMITED SINGLE QRP LIMITED MULTI". None of these are valid
categories for the ARRL International DX Contest.

Another problem that frequently occurs is participants mislabeling or not
including their ARRL/RAC Section in the header.  This information, that may
differ from the sent contest exchange, is used to sort for section and
division awards.  While your contest exchange may be CA, NY, NJ, MA, WA, FL
or TX, each of those states has between 2 and 9 sections.

If we could not identify information in your log and you find it marked as
**** you must contact me to resolve the problem.  If you do not, your log
will be reclassified as a checklog.

We have tried to deal with these as best as possible, but we again encourage
participants to please check your entries before you submit them for
accuracy in the Summary Sheet information in the Cabrillo header.
Unfortunately several in-use versions of commercial logging programs allow
you to select entry categories which do not exist in specific events.
Please help us report the results more accurately by verifying that the
information you submit is accurate before sending in your entry.

Thanks and 73
