Here we go again...................... I vote leave ALL the contests the way they are....... If we ALL want to win, or level the scoreboard, you need to spend the money, have the location, and pay your dues. That's why I'LL probably NEVER win... I still enjoy doing it, BUT THAT'S THE WAY IT IS...... And this is not a solo personal attack, but due to postings of late: Perhaps a "whining about unfair contesting" reflector should start. Seems like every week, same old stuff.

I'm not penalizing broadcast stations that sit on

I'm suggesting that non-CQing stations should receive
2x points for those contacts, because S&P rates are
one half of the run rates.

That would bring parity in scores for those that can
run with those that can't, but still work just as hard.
