I appreciate the sentiment behind the rule, but enforcement is only likely to hurt the innocent.


I can’t conceive of a “robot check” (generally available to “Joe Sixpack” casual operators) which would reveal that my QSO partner was not an attended station.  So I work the station, claim it in an applications for an award (with the appropriate fee payment), and am denied the award.


That would suck.

I wrote that rule with the late Jim Tiemstra, K6JAT.


Enforcement is up to the awards branch.
