It just came out of the blue today...the solution for a ZERO error rate for
all contest log submitters, and it's very simple.
If each contest exchange required both parties in the QSO to re-send what
he (or she) has typed into *their* software (callsign and complete
exchange), a full two-way QSO would not be considered as bona fide until
both sides give each other a final "R" or "TU" (for "Thumbs Up" :-) When
both logs are sent in, error checking should result in no errors for either
OK...many will think "Horrors - my total QSO rate will be cut in half...or
Not a problem. Final tabulation upon log submission can be "Actual QSOs"
(times 2) = "Final QSOs". Or, double the point value per
QSO. Shucks...you could even multiple by 3 or 4 or whatever! It's called
"Creative Accounting" !!!
Simple. Non-Rocket Science. It *is* a possible (creative) solution.
FYI & 73...
