Or... to simplify everything, the ARRL doesn't really know how you 
generated the CW, RTTY, PHONE, ETC signals, so they should eliminate all 
this record keeping baloney and have only ONE DXCC award.

Why should the mode matter at all? You worked a country... err... 
"Entity"... And who decided HI and AK were countries... err... 
"Entities" in the first place?

(Yes, as a matter of fact, I did come here looking for an argument. But 
just the 5-minute argument for now.)
