It may very well be a log checkers nightmare.  I was called by, and also 
answered callers in the IN and NE QSO parties as well as the ARI 
Contest, some random stations asking for a NV QSL (I doubt if they will 
submit a log) and a couple of special event stations.  Too bad the bands 
were too good for us.  10 and 15 were really dead for me.
