[CQ-Contest] Log Submission Times

I agree that technology has facilitated the ease at which logs can be 
sent in.  However, comparing the reporting of trading blocks and contest 
logs are not quite the same.  Trading implies computer direct 
connections and offices located in major trading centers (New York, 
Chicago, London, Tokyo).  That is a major contrast to a remote station 
located in Banjul.

Nonetheless, I would suggest that the CQ Committee consider a tiered 
approach to log submission - similar to what RDXC does.  If you think 
you've got a high scoring log - one that will be a world top ten log - 
you must submit it within five days of the end of the contest (by 2359z 
Friday). If you just played around to work points for the club or for 
your own goals, then you have 30 days as your score (and any creativity 
you undertake) will be unlikely to affect top rankings.
