[CQ-Contest] RDXC Log Checking

It seems to me that the real problem is that the RDXC is the only major 
contest that penalizes Station A if Station B miscopies his serial 
number.  Because such errors aren't penalized in other contests, a very 
pervasive pattern has developed - if the calling station thinks he has 
copied the number correctly, then he simply goes on to send his.  If the 
running station is comfortable with what he copied, he simply says "TU" or 
some variant and continues running.

It is a little hard for me to picture how anything the running station can 
do will significantly improve the calling station's accuracy, unless he 
wants to insist on getting his serial number repeated back to him.  Please, 
no...anything but that!
