I suspect if you do not turn in an RAC log they will be uniques at worst.  You being in more than one log submitted they won't even be that.  They will be counted as good QSOs (which they actually were).

I was in the 9A contest on/off today.  I specifically set my CQ message to '9A test NR4M NR4M' to dissuade people in the RAC from calling me. After the 3rd VE, I just entered '001' instead of 'ON', 'SK' or whatever.  N1MM didn't like what they sent and I didn't feel like arguing with them.

Then, I changed my 'TU' message to 'TU NR4M 9A TEST', and still got RAC contestants.  There were also US stations sending me serial numbers of
300 plus.  Find that hard to believe that were in the 9A contest.  I'm quite sure these were people just clicking on spots and didn't have the ability to actually copy what I was sending.

There surely will be a bunch of NIL's.

73 de Steve, NR4M
