Thanks..I read the rules at the club website several times--Love the
new web site---but can't see that they address the question directly.
Should I or should I not start making contacts with contest
participants prior to my local start time even though I don't get
contest points for it?
The reason that I would do something like that is (for them) to help
others get points and (for me) to probably make more 070 contacts for
Milt's understanding may be correct, but since a call would not appear
more than once in your submitted contest log, how can there be a dupe?
It seems to me that prior contacts should not be discouraged. Why not
help out both parties and encourage more activity? But I'm probably
missing a consideration here..
And Tnx for the compliment, Milt. I saw your QSO with Harry in HI, and
it looks like the reflector mention was indeed keeping him busy.
I'm pretty limited right now on 80M and non-existent on 160M, so won't
be doing much tonight. But I'm working on it...:-)
