It's been a long time since I entered a contest seriously so I can't get



I wasn't born in Saskatchewan, but I got here as soon as I could. 


One really needs to look at the contest rules before deciding to not send
RST.  If it is the rules, please send it.


A few years ago, there was a bit of a blow up on the CQ Contest reflector
over this very issue.  A high scoring station decided to not send RST.  He
did this in order to shave a few seconds off his contest exchange, and some
folks cried fowl.  In the end, he decided to submit his log as a checklog.
So - instead of a big score, he scored zero...


So - do whatever you like.  SP does not require RST, so no problem there.
But - be aware that some contests require RST, and may lead to a DQ for not
following the rules...
