It's interesting to see people complaining about general contest issues
when the thread is specifically about the Stew Perry. Some clearly are
clueless about the Stew Perry format. All one has to do to see what is
going on in the "Stew", is Google "Stew Perry Rules" and go look. Not a
great inconvenience, really.
" 4. Exchange: Four character grid square (i.e. CN85). RST is optional."
Once in a great while I will hear a 599, but just about always only the
N1MM's entry window for the Stew has call and grid, so that's it.
599 is in the Cabrillo log format, but that is probably just a concession
to log-checking programs.
And how many of us were actually acquainted with Stew before he joined the
ranks of Silent Keys, while he was still wandering upon the face of the
earth? Without that, how does one know what Stew would have wanted?
