I sent competition log and separate checklog as any savvy computer user would do!   
I couldn't imagine that robot can't distinguished categories, one of the major contest

Normally, I would write directly to S56A and not take up the bandwidth, but this is
worth sharing so that others might learn as well.

(and was is not "new")

Rule III
6. A different call sign must be used for each CQ WW entry.

So the robot did exactly the correct thing for CQWW.  If you want to enter a specific
category of entry, but your actual operation included QSOs beyond that category of entry,
please submit only ONE entry, which includes all of your QSOs.  Your category will parsed
from the header, irrespective of the submitted QSOs.

Hope this helps!
