Do you think the IOF-rules should be changed so that base station must be checked if written protest? There have been fierce discussion about the topic after the World Cup and EOC in Ski-Orienteering in Bulgaria/Romania.
A team was disqualified from a Gold medal in the mixed relay, but the competitor was 100% sure that he had received visual/audio signal at the SportIdent control. A protest was delivered, and the base station was checked for registration. The registration was found in the base station, and the team was reinstated on the result list. This is actually against the IOF rules (depending on how you interpret the rules). The problem with having to check the base station is of course that it may take an extra hour or more before the winner is certain in a competition.
