Sure, lets change the rules allowing Grid Squares.  Let's up the size
of the multiplier.  Bigger scores, record breakers...
While we're at it, let us allow professional baseball players to use
Aluminum bats.  When all those contest records are broken, make sure you
put an  *   after at that record holders' call(s), as you will have to 
explain HOW it was done; by the use of GRID SQUARES, NOT CQ ZONES.  
As a good friend of mine and fellow contester said as we were BSing over
lunch one time: 'the 5NN is kinda like an ACK for contesters...
you hear that and then you know you have to copy the next thing that is 
sent.'  I DO copy the exchange, and not "guess" at it.  That
's my 0.0000001 % opinion.  Tom, KY2T (6726326@MCIMAIL.COM) FRC all the WAY!

What I use is something that in the Electronics Industry called
Brady Markers.  They usually come in a pack in either letters or
numbers and consist of a plastic card about 2 inches X 8 inches with
strips of each number, like:
1 1 1 1 1 1 1 
1 1 1 1 1 1 1 
1 1 1 1 1 1 1 

etc.  You take off 1 strip as necessary to mark the approprite cable.

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 

If you also get the letters, you can even say things like:
2 2 2 2 2 2 2 
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 
P P P P P P P 

for 20M upper (as in a stack).   They are cloth type and stand up
fairly well.
