[CQ-Contest] Bad Format Logs

The CQ Committee might want to consider that there are other contests in 
the world that REQUIRE that a log contain only QSOs for the category 
elected or it will be reclassified according to what is actually in the 
log.  I read that in one contest rules in the past few weeks.  That 
contest said to put other QSOs made on other bands/modes into a separate 
log and send it in as a Check Log.  I'm not sure how I could do that 
easily, but Mario seems to know how.

It would be better if the Robot could be made to accept a separate Check 
Log without overwriting or deleting the previously submitted log if it 
was clearly marked "Check Log" in the Category section since other 
contest sponsors have accustomed contesters in other countries to do 
that very thing.

Sorry I can't remember what contest it was right now, but it did 
surprise me since it is contrary to what we have generally been doing 
and requiring in the US.

73, John, K4BAI.
