It seems to me that ham-radio contesting is divided into two classes -
drivers and passengers. Drivers decode othertransmissions themselves,
everyone else is a passenger.
If you're in a car, and someone else (or the car itself) drives you
there - then you're a passenger. Whyshould anyone get credit for
completing a journey when all they've done is tell the driver (or
the car) where to go or which way to turn?
If you're in a contest, and not doing the decoding yourself, then
you're a passenger. All users of data modes are passengers. CW ops
who treat CW as just another data mode, and rely on decoders, are
OK Google - work P5 for me :-)
