I am sorry guys but publicly accusing someone of cheating on this reflector and blacken 
there name is totally wrong, in the case of this young PY station he may likely chose not to enter
another contest because of it, and we wonder why there is no young blood coming into this hobby ?.

What Dave is doing is an excellent job however the info should be passed onto the contest committee to help
them with log checking / deciding category winners, same goes for anyone else who has a query over a stations 
contest effort, send the evidence to the contest community and let them decide to deduct points or disqualify the station.

I have never self spot, no do i believe 95% of the contest community has ever done either and think it is just wrong, i do not know
the PY station or how well he has done in his category, i am going to assume he is not going to be a category winner or even
come close, so what difference does it make if he self spots or not to increase his activity and enjoyment of the contest.
Obviously if it was a serious effort it should be up to the contest committee to decide to deduct or disqualify and not us.

Hi all,

Just to give a feedback on the report of the spots K1TTT, where 
indicated PU2FAN as a selfspotter. PU2FAN is an operator of 18 years, 
licensed for less then one year, has learned CW  by himself.  He works 
with a CB transceiver converted to 40m.

We contacted him about the self-spots, and he really did not know it was 
against the rules of the contest. He apologizes about what happened.
