OK, I'll bite ;)
- Using RBN in a phone contest: *DING*
- Working stations which do not count in your contest: *DING*
- Making CW QSO in a phone contest: *DING*
- Making QSO on a WARC band during phone contest: *DING*
- Entering above QSO's in the phone contest log: *DING*
- Asking questions on a contest mailing list on all the above *DING*
Anyway, I am sure you enjoyed those hours of participation and that's what it is all about in contesting :)
73 Mark, PA5MW
(p.s. using QRP in a phone contest: *DING* )

> p.s. I KNOW that assistance from skimmers and DX clusters is not permissible with single op category, so I didn't use it. It's very easy to set up the RBN to only search for W1AW/* and similarly it's easy to do so for the dxsummit.fi.
