Which means that if M/S station happens to log you in error or violation of
the rules, they will simply delete you from their log in order not to be
trashed into MM category.
The net result? You become "not in (their) log", lose QSO and possibly
multiplier and be "penalized" additional 3 QSOs to teach you a "lesson" to log "more
accurately" and not to make up "fictitious" QSOs.
Yea, I know: It teaches me not to cheat, operate more precisely and punishes
me for sloppy operating. Hit me more!
Feels really god if you operate one of the less frequented bands like 160,
work your butt off, beat the record by slim margin only to find out that you
"cheated" and came short because of the great penalty system.
Back to the net!
message to contesters: I will record every QSO and if we worked and you did
not log me, I will appeal to supreme court and have you reclassified into the
bottom of MM pile!
Good thing it is only a hobby and sponsors don't get penalized for not
sending certificates and trophies :-)
