Hi. I looked at the GRs, but either I missed a clause on this or it is not clearly stated. Questions are about the following scenarios for my log as an Activator:
(1) I am being chased by a station, say SP1ABCD on 7.032 cw, then after a while the same station calls me at 14.062 cw. Does this qualify as 2 QSO’s or 1 in SOTA QSO’s count?
(2) I am being chased by a station SP1ABCD on 7.032 cw, then after a while the station calls me on 7.150 ssb. Does this qualify as 2QSO’s or 1 in SOTA QSO’s count?
(3) I am being chased by a station SP1ABCD on 7.032 cw, then after a while the operator calls me also at 7.032 cw but as a club station SP1PPPP. Does this count as 2QSO’s or 1?
I know I log those as such, because my log is the actual log of all QSOs regardless SOTA, but what do I submit to the SOTA database? And even if I submit the “dupes” (well, are they really dupes?), then how will the database recognize that (for example I have altogether 4QSO’s, of which 2 are as in any of the scenarios mentioned above)? And finally - if next QSO with the same OP can or cannot be treated as another QSO SOTA-wise, then which paragraph says so?
Thanks for your feedback.
(just to emphasize, I am asking as an Activator being chased and just my log, not the log of the OP mentioned in the scenarios - I even assume the OP is not a regular SOTA chaser and does not log at all, just for the clarity of the ask).
