ATTENTION !!! the AO-7 log 'CQ' chaps.





CQ does *NOT* belong in the QSO pane of the AO-7 log. That pane is for 'actual' QSO's ... 'CQ' might be valid in the COMMENTS field though I doubt if anyone is interested that somebody called CQ.

The following "instruction" is in fact on the same page as the log entry page but here seems to be difficulty with English speaking stations *NOT understanding the (quote) "If you need to change an entry you have made, click on the magnifying glass to review the record ,then click the update link (unquote).

Presumably, after several requests on the bb's for a little more dilligence in filling out the log it's quite likely that it's being done deliberately, which is about on par with the VFO swisher intelligence
(or should one say, lack of).

It has been suggested that these stations might not read the bb's ...
point taken - but surely they have eyes? ... and can read their own entries? ... (as well as the sentence at the top of the page).

There is *ALWAYS* an excuse for human error ... but the same error consistently ... well ... you know as well as everyone else ...

As I mentioned previously, regarding 'statistics' - if they're not collated correctly, the results will be incorrect ... in that case, what is the point in filling out the log in the first place ??.

Pardon me for trying to preserve a very useful resource.
