Since I don't have any 160m antenna, I once started CT up and filled a
test file with the callsigns of those NO-QSLer's, all on the 160m
band, then I use that file during contests and when the contest is
over I delete all the 160m QSOs before sending my log in.

When I go tuning the bands and hear a call which results already
worked on the 160m band I skip it and go work the next one.

This way I don't have to remember all those callsigns, and that's a
good thing because the list of the NO-QSLer's is getting bigger by
the day.

I usually do this when I'm casual contesting at home...when I'm guest
operating at some multi station I work anyone.
