[Moon-Net] Logs

I've always sent the signal report exchange, either in dB, RST or "OOO/RO" format for the ARRL EME contest.

As far as I know there is no requirement to send a grid locator, though everybody does. So you couldn't use the grid as the exchange.

"4. Exchange: Each station must send and receive both call signs and a signal report in any mutually understood format, plus an acknowledgment of the calls and report. Partial or incomplete contacts should be indicated on your log, but not counted for contest credit."

Since there's no requirement to send grid, I've often wondered how you are supposed to figure out what state/province a station is in. I suppose you could look up the licence address, but there's no guarantee that a station is operating from their home location.

EME contest rules states:  “....worked, EME exchange sent, EME exchange received, each new multiplier, and points earned. Photocopies of the log”

I don’t see any definition of what exactly “EME exchange sent” or “EME exchange received” means?

In VHF contest, it is grid, but I have been using RO and OOO.  Can somebody clarify?
