Yes Gilles, I agree 100% and I am always ready/flexible with a second
exchange for when contests overlap.

My point was, I was running and giving my FN66 as my exchange (ready to send
NB if need be)

It was the fact that none of my callers sent me their grid along with their
province that struck me.

On my point of view, If I am working the Stew and a RAC Winter contest guy
calls me and gives me his grid plus his province, I will answer both being
happy to log one more and make someone happy with a multiplier. If they give
only the province but not the grid even after I asked them, that's an other


If I just participated to the RAC Winter contest before switching to the
Stew and already have a RAC winter contest log, that will not be a big deal,
after the Stew contest, to add those few Contacts in my RAC log too for the
RAC guys not having those QSO's NIL. 

It is just a question of flexibility versus rigidity.
