Am I correct to assume that the CQWW Committee will not be listening to every moment of every recording made by every top five entrant? But rather they will focus on ones where there is already some reason to suspect some significant rules violation?

So why is it necessary for each top entrant to be able to prove they are innocent, rather than allowing, but not requiring, anybody to submit a recording in their defense as proof that any suspicions were unfounded? Is the Committee planning to make these recordings public, just as logs are now made public?

And what will happen if an eighteen minute gap is discovered, when at a critical time the operator leaned over to adjust the amplifier and just happened to hit the wrong key on the recorder?
