[OhQP-mail] Spotting Question

>From my in-state efforts, the number of spots in the OhQP that are wroth
chasing are mainly Ohio mobile stations.  Most of the guys who are running
people will be worked anyway, so I dont want to see their spots.  I tighten
up my filters so when a spot does show up in the spot window, it's
something I need to pay attention to.  Otherwise there are way too many
spots of people who are not in the OhQP, and it's way too distracting.  If
I recall, I think I used these commands in a DXSpider network:

 reject/spot not call_dxcc k,ve  accept/spot 0 call_state
OH,HI,AK,nb,ns,pe,nl,qc,on,mb,sk,ab,bc,nt,nu,yt,nd,sd,ky  accept/spot 1
info OQP,OHQP,OHIO,OH,  accept/spot 2 call k8mr,w1nn, k8o, k8ryu, (etc)

The goal was to mainly allow:
- Ohio mobile stations
- stations in rarer states or VE provinces so I can get a rare mult
- Anyone spotted for OhQP (OHQP, OQP, OHIO, OH in the info section)

Packet guru's may have a smoother way to do what I noted above.  For an
in-state op, spotting any out of state stations is a waste of time - you
will work more people by calling CQ than chasing spots of people in a
standard QSO that get spotted.

Good luck to everyone this year.  As many know, I have moved out of Ohio,
and now live in VA.  My anniversary is on Sunday, and my wife booked us
into a hotel in Virginia Beach for the weekend.  Who am I to argue? I live
by "happy wife, happy life".   Hopefully CU next year from VA.
