The board also approved a motion to require that all contacts claimed for credit in ARRL contests and the DXCC program must have a human operator at both ends to initiate the contact. This means that contacts by or with fully automated stations will not count for ARRL contest or DXCC credit.

League Rescinds Censure and Bans Robot Contacts
