[CQ-Contest] [Gmc] CQ contest submission deadlinegetting shorter....

I generally think shortening the deadline is a good thing.  But five days
seems short.  Maybe not so much for single ops -- I usually send in my log
first thing the morning after the contest.  

But I have had some pretty snarled up logs after multi-ops -- computer time
not in sync, not all QSOs replicated, lots of operator notes to sort
through, etc.  I processed our M/M log from HC8N years ago, and had a number
of manual steps to go through to get them split out, then merged again.  I
was happy to have been able to enjoy the Galapagos after the contest and
leave the log crunching task until I got home.

But honestly guys,
when you last heard about (contest) DX-pedition without the
internet-connection? (Maybe someone in IOTA Contest ..)
