    As I read the global rules, it seems that only callsign and signal report are strictly required for a valid exchange. WWFF reference number is encouraged, but a contact will remain valid for the program even if it is not exchanged:

    3.12 Valid contact exchange
    Valid contacts will include an exchange between the activator and the
    hunter of their respective call signs, a signal report, and wherever
    possible the WWFF reference number.

    So what’s to stop someone from participating in a contest to rack up WWFF contacts? Is it acceptable? Ethical? It seems that the “hunters” in that case would likely not even know they were making a WWFF contact, but does that matter?

    Absolutely nothing 🙂 In fact, it is encouraged – see GreenDay

    In the same way, some of the Big DxPeditions have submitted their logs.
