Very nice!

I managed to upload my ADIF file but for one of the entries I don't have a
received RST (I didn't get one but forgot to prune the QSO from my ADIF file
prior to upload). I'm pretty sure that's an invalid QSO, but the uploader
seems happy with it - the score it calculated seems to indicate that it
considered it a valid QSO (1 point) and a valid multiplier (my only contact
today with Belgium). Just FYI.
There’s really no good way to programmatically determine if a QSO is missing RST info. There are too many places people hide it in fields strewn across the record that are non-standard because of how various loggers work. I wouldn’t get too hung up on a “missing” RST for a single contact. I can make the code more stringent, but you getting one extra QSO is a small price to pay for the avalanche of other ones that wouldn’t be counted as a result.
