     What, exactly, compels a station to spot a contest DXpedition 67
times in 48 hours?  What should I conclude about the fact that six out 
of seven of the contest DXpedition operators are members of the same 
contest club as the spotter?  A club that was named in some of the 
spotter's comments?

     Doesn't this cross some line in terms of assistance?  At what point
do we begin to look at the club spotting team back in the states as an
integral part of the contest operation?  Doesn't this look a little 
like the club spotting team back home was calling CQ (over the spotting
network) on behalf of the contest DXpedition?
