Yes - sending in ASCII is something that can be hard to do depending
on which program you are using. It is one of those basic skills that
gets harder to do as mail programs get more intelligent.
This is not why my log was rejected however. It was sent as ASCII
and was still ASCII when they "returned" my log. I got a chuckle
when Bev told me she didn't have my log anymore because she returned
it to me.

Wanna hear something funny?? When the Stew Perry results came out,
I got a note from several stations who sent in logs, but the score
didn't make it. One of them was from K1ZZ.
