There still appear to be problems with marking a QSO as bad (0 point
claim) using the CTRL-L method.
In the CQWW-CW we worked HZ1AB on the multiplier station. When
logging the QSO, CT protested, saying it broke the 10 minute rule,
which it did.
I then waited around, and worked him again, 8 minutes later, with the
intention of claiming the 2nd QSO. Luckily HZ1AB didn't blink an eye
and happily worked us again :-)
Post contest, the 1st HZ1AB QSO was marked with CTRL-L, turning it
into a NIL pointer folowed by '\\\\\\'. The multiplier credit shifted
to the 2nd QSO. So far, so good.
When I restarted CT (V9.27), I noticed the 1st HZ1AB was still marked
bad, but the 2nd QSO had become a dupe, causing us to still miss out
on the much needed HZ mult.
Anyway, in the end I removed the 1st HZ1AB from the log altogether to
ensure we got HZ credit yet not become a multi/multi. This solution
is not entirely satisfactory: if HZ1AB claims the 1st QSO and his log
is checked against ours, it may be disallowed and he may get
penalised. For this reason I am considering submitting a separate
Is there a way to leave a QSO in the log, yet mark it 'not worked'
for pointscoring purposes so that station can later be worked again
for full points credit?
