Each station is responsible for keeping their own operation completely 
legal, and we have to assume that the other stations we work are doing the 
same thing.

Further, we must assume that the contest sponsors are capably examining our 
logs and penalizing or DQ'ing transgressors.

Most of us are sick to the point of nausea of the jeremiads from 
self-appointed Kontest Kops who have no standing beyond that of "Fellow 
Radiosport Participant".
