Log checking for several recent contests that used the FT4 and FT8 modes 
has shown undesirably large numbers of claimed QSOs that receive 
not-in-log ("NIL") status from the other station.  The WSJT development 
team has worked together with contest sponsors and log checkers to 
analyze the probable causes of these NILs.  Our findings and some 
operating advice for future contests are posted here:
and will also appear in the May-June 2020 issue of NCJ, the National 
Contest Journal.
