I don't think the issue is whether or not you use a recorder, packet/psk31/rtty ops are not penalised because they have 
a computer record of the contact by virtue of the technology used for that mode. If a voice recorder is part of your 
shack, that's fine.

The issue is having to ask others if they heard your QSO and can tell you the details.
If you chose technology to help you, fine. If your technology fails, so does the QSO. It's not acceptable to expect the 
rest of the world to be your log keeper.
