Yes I am serious
Yes it is a hobby.
But also there are achievement awards. That are to some not worth

copying the information, and getting the info from a third source is

have made by making the contact with our station alone.

Maybe I'm old skool on this,  but to me unless you did everything 
yourself to make the contact,  then you did not make the contact.
