Hi All:
I agree with Ev that the best way to ensure that your score stands any chance
of being correct in QST is to check the "Logs Received" section on the ARRL

That being said, I don't think it would have helped in Jacobs case as I don't
think that the ARRL Contest Branch posted the "Logs Received" for the Sept 02
VHF Contest.

I kept checking for the ARRL to post the logs until I forgot about it.  When I
received the March QST, I found that I had been listed in the wrong section,
WMA instead of EMA.  I immediately went to the ARRL Site
to check on my log.  I found the below contest logs listed.

2001 ARRL International EME Competition
2001 ARRL 10 GHz and Up Competition
2001 IARU HF World Championship
2001 ARRL June VHF QSO Party

I thought it strange that contests before and after the Sept VHF contest were
listed and that Sept was missing.

Did anyone actually see the Sept contest listed on the ARRL Web Site ???
