Jerry -

You can INCLUDE any dupes in the log you submit, but the checker will give you zero points for any that are in your operating period. That means they don't count.

For this contest, "dupe" means same callsign and same mode. (We don't have to say "same band" since all QSOs have to be 20m.) So if you had worked me on BPSK31, BPSK63 and QPSK31 (the only three variants that DigiPan 2.0 has), then they count as three separate QSOs since they are different modes.

Hmmmm ... didn't see anything in rules for this contest about dupes.  If we were allowed dupes than that makes this test too complicated...  I may have missed something when I read rules, but I doubt it. 

This may be my last 31 flavors.  I was ill all day yesterday and the switching between modes was driving me nuts.  Spent more time off the air than on.

You can have dupes any time you want. But:

- only six hours worth of operating will be counted for your score
- dupes during that period will be worth 0 (zero) QSO points

The scorer will ignore any QSOs outside of the operating period you select. Since it doesn't care about those QSOs, it doesn't care if they are dupes during that period.

If I'm going to call "CQ Contest" on a band that looks dead...let it be 20m!
OA4DOS @ 01:31
CO6GU @ 03:18
JM7OLW @ 03:52

If I'm understanding this correctly, I can have "Dupes" during the entire time of the operating event. Just no dupes during my 6 hour log submittal time block?
Is this correct?

Bob, I get you in my log almost every contest. Not this time. Not a peep heard.  S9 noise here sounded like arc welding.

Thanks for having this contest.  Really a challenge.  Had very high noise at my location in Oceanside CA.  Only had  about 30 contacts buts still enjoyed myself.
