I'd missed that announcement, now I am going to go look it up and review it carefully, because this seems what I've been saying for years... this seems to address many of the issues that I have with contesting and sending in the log after it has been completely redone... A warm pat on the back to those responsible...!!!

> The March QST has an announcement for "The ARRL Rookie Roundup" to be held in Aoril. It is the entry level contest that more or less is a follow-on to the Novice Roundup in which many of us (WN0MWN in 1966 included) started our contesting career.
> Of note in the announcement is that "100% real time logging, scoring and adjudication" will be used. "Results will be published online within minutes after the contest." This should effectively deal with lots of problems.
> The Rookie Roundup will be 6 hours long and held on 3 weekends, one each for SSB, CW and RTTY. Nonrookies can participate, but can work rookies only.
> It is probably not too soon to make noise at your local club about getting rookies involved. And to give them a clue on how to deal with a pileup. I suspect that there will be a lot more nonrookies than rookies in the contest. :^)= I am glad that the ARRL is taking positive steps to encourage new hams to contest and to use modern technology for logging. - Duffey
