Re: [N1MM] Re: KH6YR is in KH6, zone 31 but got logged as K, zone 3
- Leaving angels along, perhaps it's worth to say that a neutral question
about A HAWAIIAN STATION would be much more legitimate than a detailled
during-a-contest discussion about a particular station, its particular
location and a particular exchange.
The assisted - non-assisted topic is too sensitive nowadays. The Yellow
Card - Red Card - DQ game is on even if somebody is not aware of that. There
is no reason to feed the beast.
