I would disagree that grooming your log /post contest/ with an audio 
recording is acceptable.

I believe that my log ought to reflect what I actually recorded IN THE HEAT 
OF BATTLE.  No exceptions.

Hello ALL,

Because I can not believe I will be not able to use my own audio recordings 
after the contest (what I am doing very rare and just for the really 
questionable moments which are very few) I take a look to the 
http://www.cqww.com/rules.php and has found something different from Phillip 
was wrote.
Here is a part of the text:
"<snip> post-contest modification of a log by using data sources to correct 
call sign/exchange errors and "rubber clocking" by the entrant." (chapter 
XIII, part C, nr. 3).
There is nothing about usage of the own audio records... All other text is 
100% acceptable for me as well as a new log sending period of 5 days (7 
could be easier to remember for the human IMHO :) ).
Will look forward for more clear explanations from CC.

Posted on Radio-sport.net
Along with instituting a new five day log submission deadline, the CQ WW
Contest Committee has included a specific rule change for the 2012 CQ WW DX
Contests that seeks to crack down on post contest log changes. "Post-contest
correcting of call signs by using any database, recordings or confirming 
is not allowed."
