I must respectfully disagree with my esteemed colleague Doug.  I too looked
through the original transmittal from the CQ WW Contest committee.  While
any one or even a couple of these circumstance could be explained away as

I think the committee did good work here.  I hope a lesson for others is
learned.  These games will get caught, eventually.
