Is the IARU robot really so dumb that it cannot
recognise non-W/VE entries (from the callsign)
and automatically assign a "DX" location,
regardless of missing or incorrect location

It seems to me that a one-time update might
eliminate this problem in non-W/VE logs.

Although the definition of the Location tag at
refers to ARRL contests (presumably including
this event), there is no apparent reference to
"DX" being a required Location for non-W/VE
entrants.  This applies equally to the rules
at http://www.arrl.org/iaru-hf-championship
