[CQ-Contest] Posting Scores

 From my experience, the decision to spot is largely a judgement of what 
one thinks would be interesting for somebody to work. In my time at the 
K8AZ multiop efforts, when on the multiplier station, or listening on a 
band we aren't using at the time, I'll spot Asian or Pacific mults, but 
I rarely bother to spot common Europeans.

I sense the same thing (by checking spots after the contest) in 
domestic contests, that guys in North Dakota or Wyoming get a lot more 
spots than us folks in Ohio.

On a different subject, today in Florida, not inspired to drag out the 
KX3 and antennas to do QRP on SSB to give out the rare K8 multiplier, I 
checked into the WPX scoreboard. It was about as interesting to a 
non-participating person as is watching paint dry. (That's paint on 
walls, not drying body paint which can be quite interesting  :-)  ).  I 
can't imagine trying to introduce somebody to contesting by having them 
watch a glorified spread sheet.

Now maybe if we could hear streaming audio from CN2AA . . .

Clearly, virtually no one is spotting every station they hear in an SSB
contest, so what is the decision making that people use to decide 
whether to
spot or not - when contesting assisted?
