Dear fellow contesters,

Yesterday I was using the DX Cluster (DXWatch website) to do some statistics and check the best time for propagation.
I found that some participants have been self-spotting.
I had a look in the rules (http://www.jarl.or.jp/English/4_Library/A-4-3_Contests/2013AA_rule.htm) and it seems there are no expressed rules against self-spotting...

Does someone know the exact position of the JARL contest committee on this topic ?
I thought self-spotting was not considered as a sign of good manner and was banned from all contests.
I am surprised JARL seems "open" to this...
