Re: Field Day log checking

FD has power multipiers and bonus point categories but sections/states are not mults.  Nor are actual logs submitted, so there is no adjudication [log checking].  Different folks view FD differently.  If you keep score, some say it's automatically a contest.  The one thing FD definitely provides is a chance to experience HF, CW, and SSB for clubs/hams that are mainly shack-on-the-belt oriented.  It's also been the spark for a great number of young folk over the years, which is good, so whether or not it is a contest is somewhat of an empty argument.

Oh yes...
