Hi Jose,

	I had a few questions about your analysis:

1.  Jim sends his call as his acknowledgement.  Don't
you at least send a "TU" or "R"?  That should be
compared against time for "ZD8Z".

2.  Have you accounted for the lost time when
someone sends "CL?" on top of someone answering
you, which then requires a full repeat?

3.  Have you accounted for dupes caused by stations
that work you and then ask "CL?" during their exchange?

4.  Have you accounted for busted QSO's caused by
Packet which cannot be corrected since you don't sign
your call?

5  If you send at 40 WPM for the entire contest period,
will you limit the number of casual stations who will be
calling you?
