This idea was thrown out by Tom (N4KG) only as a "How would you like it"
scenario. I don't believe this discussion is a "Lets make everyone
equal" type of discussion. That will never happen, why try?
The idea is to give guys in areas that work a high percentage of ZERO
point ZERO credit QSO's a reason to be on the air. This is the only
contest that encourages country to country QSO's and gives NO credit for
a high percentage of those QSO's.
Nobody will care about this issue in 3 years. I dont think that's a
reason to drop the discussion. Encouraging contest participation at the
bottom of the cycle is a good thing.
