     The ARRL Programs and Services Committee VHF-UHF Contest and Awards 
Subcommittee has recently published several proposed rules changes for 
ARRL VHF/UHF contests.  If you are an ARRL member or contest participant,
and you haven't already seen the proposal, you can read it online here:

     I have written a Perl program that can read in multiple Cabrillo logs
for the ARRL January, June, and September VHF contests, and compute
eight different scores - variations on the current scoring formulas,
distance scoring, different multiplier rules for the rover category, etc.  
The code and a more detailed explanation is available here:


     You can feed all your VHF contest logs into this code and see exactly
how much difference the various possible scoring formulas would have made
on your contest score.  I welcome feedback.
