Re: ARRL v Robot

I don't think there is anything to worry about.  The ARRL is very busy and I doubt they have time to investigate and prove what you are using for operating software.  I'm curious though?  What "automation" are they speaking of?  I'm not aware of any software that makes automatic QSOs although I guess it could be done.

Is this true?  I know you aren't supposed to claim credit for any QSO involving automation, but that's a far step from taking away an award which was otherwise earned honestly.
