I compliment him for his effort and apology. It's easier for someone new to contesting to make a mistake/error in judgment, than for a seasoned veteran to explain away the same thing.

Too, K1TTT and the hams in Brazil are to be complimented on their efforts in identifying and resolving problems.

Hopefully, we'll see more of PU2FAN in future contests. It sounds like he has a lot of drive and talent, from this brief post, and deserves encouragement.
