(no QSO's) to 947 contacts (no QSO's) for a single pass.
> One station logged a QSO, claimed the points but logged the transponder as
being OFF ... (which it couldn't have been if he made a QSO through it).
> Such entries make a mockery of the object of the log.
> Also - LA2QAA no longer edits the entries.
