[CQ-Contest] We can end this argument

I wonder how much use is being made of the "signature" technique 
developed a few years ago by VE5ZX and CT1BOH.  While it falls short of 
the absolute standard that might be required in court, it offers a 
pretty clear way of identifying likely cheaters of this kind, yet I have 
seen no reference to it at all in the years since.  Now that we have 
logs available for all CQWW participants, it would seem trivial to test 
each of the claimed unassisted logs against this standard.
