   To make life more interesting, the contest could require that the exchange you send is the one you just copied in the previous
QSO.  I think this is used in one of the Scandinavian contests.

   Not only does it make the exchange unpredictable, but it is a wonderful log-checking tool.

   The alert operator can also take advantage of this to confirm his QSO.  If the station he just worked sends on that exchange to
its next contact, he knows all is well.

What an excellent idea! A more challenging exchange makes for more
meaningful contest. For us newbies, the "5nn k" is really a no brainer. I'd
like to be able to believe that what I am copying is a real number/message.
Good for the code speed too. Just as long as 1's and 9's don't degenerate
into "a" and "n". Just my two cents worth.
