A new thread, almost as controversial as direction... Time!!!!!!!!!!
Why, with all the I'net timing capabilities, can't people log with somewhat
accurate time? Why, I see QSO's off as far as 45 minutes. I can understand
one hour, one day, one year... but 45 min?
It is time <g> we unite and take a stand against these LIDS that can't keep
a log with accurate times. I want a scientific poll as to what level of
accuracy we, as leaders in the technical realm, are willing to accept. I
for one am willing to accept error as much as 10^-3 seconds but I realise
that is not all that good. Some may choose the ultimate, that is, WWV
accuracy or nothing.
QSL Managers, take a stand and check ur logs. If the QSO ain't within the
acceptable range, say "NOT IN LOG".
