[OhQP-mail] The dreaded robot

My rule of thumb is: K8XX/FRAN, K8XX/QRP, K8XX/AE, K8XX/M, etc. are logged as K8XX.  K8XX/4 is logged with the suffix even if I know that he lives in Tennessee.

This doesn't always work.  I worked a 7-call who was in a QSO party in one of the 0-land states who was signing with a /0 and I logged him that way.  Later on, I removed the /0 and reloaded the logs into LoTW and got a confirmation.  But by then it was too late to change my contest log so I don't know what happened there.

There actually was an 8-call running in the TNQP who was signing with a slash and his county abbreviation. That makes things a lot less confusing to me.

In the general spirit of things, I'm not sure of the ethics of changing a log based on the way this discussion might go.

I read somewhere that the robot didn’t like a /M as an extension to a callsign and it would reject the contact.  I left all /M’s off my log.  My questions:  Since I logged the contacts with K1LT/8 this way, will the robot reject those three qso’s, or is my log OK the way it is?  Should I resubmit my log without the /8?
