Sprint Rule 11 ( available at http://www.ncjweb.com ) states:

"Special QSY Rule: If any station solicits a call (by sending CQ, QRZ?, 
"going up 5 kHz," or any other means of soliciting a response), he is 
permitted to work only one station in response to that solicitation. He 
must thereafter move at least 1 kHz before he works any other station, or 
at least 5 kHz before he again solicits other calls. Once a station is 
required to QSY, that station is not allowed to make another QSO on the 
vacated frequency until or unless at least one subsequent QSO is made on a 
new frequency at least 1 kHz or 5 kHz (as appropriate) from the vacated 

Do the contest sponsors and/or log checking program actually check logs for 
this rule violation, or do they rely on the honesty of the competitors?
