Don't be concerned about me dropping dead. I'll make sure the latest log is with another member just in case!This topic has been moved from the main list.
OK, let me try this again and hopefully we can find a solution to this problem or realize that there really isn't a problem.
I had always meant to give credit to a K1Y station for working another station. K1Y itself gets no credit at all. There is no individual K1Y entity.
If I receive a QSL card from you for a K1Y QSO that you worked as K1Y I match it up in the log and show QSL received. That gives you credit towards the sweep. I know that I worked K1Y/6. There is an entry in the K1Y log for K1Y/6 working K1Y/4 and a matching entry for K1Y/4 working K1Y/6. In both cases, I have recorded the operator in the OPERATOR field (not the CALL field) of the K1Y log. In this case, Gordon gets credit for working K1Y/4 and I get credit for working K1Y/8 towards the sweeps.
The only problem that I see is that the stats that I am generating do not take this into consideration. The stats are presented for your benefit, not mine. I do not show up for a sweep yet I have it and I will get a certificate.

THERE IS A MAJOR PROBLEM HERE... someone has the wrong time. I assume the QSLs you send me will have the time from your log which probably will not match up with the record from the K1Y operator you are trying to confirm. I cannot fix this, the original station operators must make the correction and submit it to me. However, I will notify you (as in this case) that there is an error. You can also check the online log to identify errors and ask the originator to correct it.

1/6/2007 0032 K1Y/4 Kevin 7.05496 OP: N6WK ID: K1Y/4
No problems here. Both N6WK and K4VD get credit.
As for Centurion. I have nothing to do with that. The K1Y log is not used for it. The only log required for Centurion is the applicant's log. If Dana shows K1Y/6 and W6UT in his log when applying for Centurion (assuming he gets the above problem corrected) then I assume Gordon will give him credit for both QSOs.
If there are still questions, I would suggest we pull this topic out of the main list and work on it over in the forum under the 1st Anniversary Event project. I will copy this there to get a thread started.

I certainly hope my original post did not sound as though I was ready to take my marbles and go home. If it sounded like that, I apologize.
However, as Randy mentioned here, he had to go out and rework K1Y/7 to ensure credit for it because it did not show up. If I need to do that this weekend to complete my sweep, I want to schedule my time as K1Y/5 so that I have the opportunity to work towards sweeps on my time off by getting those missing K1Ys. I don't want to stop operation during my time as /5 to go wait in line on another K1Y station.. it isn't fair to the operator hoping to work /5 when I am on.
That is the only point I was making about K1Y/5 operation. There are three of us who have taken /5 recently, and we are already beginning to discuss how to divvy up the weekend so that it is on the air as much as possible. My post was to ask for clarification before I committ to time on the air.
Making Kevin generously offer to fix the logs also bothers me. He is going to drop dead from exhaustion at this rate. Kevin, if you are ever in the area, dinner is on me... even Commander's Palace if Creole is to your liking. You are doing yeoman's service as log gatherer/QSL manager and this whole club owes you a great debt.
