<div id="AOLMsgPart_1.2_c7bf60b9-e2c0-4edc-a360-f1e5cec44459">
<div dir="auto" class="aolReplacedBody"><div><div style="direction: inherit;">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.<div style="direction: inherit;">
</div><div style="direction: inherit;">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.</div><div style="direction: inherit;">
</div><div style="direction: inherit;">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.</div><div style="direction: inherit;">
</div><div style="direction: inherit;">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.</div><div style="direction: inherit;">------------------------</div><div style="direction: inherit;">TU es 73 de Joe, W8JPF</div></div>

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?</p><p class="aolmail_MsoNormal"> </p><p class="aolmail_MsoNormal">Steve – TI8/AA8HH</p><p class="aolmail_MsoNormal"> </p><p class="aolmail_MsoNormal">Sent from <a target="_blank" href="https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=550986">Mail</a> for Windows 10</p><p class="aolmail_MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman",serif"> </span></p></div></blockquote><blockquote>
