And while the ARRL is advocating this practically non-radio event, I am still trying to obtain a VUCC certificate.  I say trying because some of my 100+ confirmations are electronic and the ARRL doesn't accept electronic submissions for VUCC.  Electronic QSLs?  Yes, the ARRL doesn't accept their own LoTW electronic QSLs for VUCC.  Maybe I should shut off my radio and start making QSOs over the Internet.  Wouldn't have to worry about propagation, interference, government allocations, or even losing the spectrum.

>PLEASE!  Can someone describe to me WHAT is the "Contest" aspect of an IRLP contact?  Also, when figuring out what is and IRLP "DX" contact, is the distance end-to-end or just the RF paths on each end?  It seems to me that "DX" of Peoria to Pretoria contact should be the total of the distance the signals from the transceivers travel to the IRLP nodes involved and not one inch more!  That boils down to very little radio and a LOT of wire and fiber optic cable connectivity.
