I am not sure of the intent of a recent AMSAT-BB
submission related to JH3XCU/1 and his entry or lack
of entry of specific information into the AO-7 web
site logger.  As far as I can tell he is a competent
operator.  I also note when searching the web that
almost all of his web information is in his native
language (Japanese) and I therefore presume that there
may be a language related issue possibly.  

If there is an issue with his submissions appropriate
use of statistical filtering is always possible to do
on the collected information.

I probably have hundreds of QSO's via AO-7 where I
only talked to myself, often times on purpose just to
measure the loopback frequency.  I don't generally
even bother to log any loopbacks or QSOs anymore. In
most cases others enter information from the other
side of the QSO so I see no need to duplicate the
information which is also a statistical problem depend
on the use of the web site collected data.

I hope we can all be more tolerant and give JH3XCU/1
the benefit of the doubt especially since he is a
fellow licensed amateur operator.

Best regards to all.

Never miss a thing.  Make Yahoo your home page.
