How about this:

Have a six hour DX sprint within a major 48 hour contest.  Start the six hour 
edition at 1600 Z on Saturday.

This is about when the sun comes up on the west coast.  The extra difficulty 
of working Europe from there would be offset by the fact that the east coast 
would have spent 4+ hours working out the band.

Both coasts, and the midwest, would have equal shots to South America.  

If all bands were allowed, the east coast opening to EU on 40 (and 80)  would 
be more or less cancelled out by the west coast opening to JA on the high 
bands.  Or maybe make it 20 - 15 - 10 meters only.

Count multipliers only once, regardless of band.
