Can't possibly be true because full duplex is a TECHNICAL REQUIREMENT
FOR SUCCESSFUL OPERATION. If you don't meet the requirements, you
can't possibly be successful.
You are not alone: my own non-full duplex contacts were also not
successful because of my failure to use a second receiver. I've
petitioned ARRL to remove my QSLs from LOTW and have disassembled and
buried my diplexer-equipped antenna because of this.
The shame of it all.
