Brilliant or maybe not.
The distance concept scoring provides big advantage for those located on the
side of heavily populated areas. For them each QSO is huge points, for all you
suckers in a "pot" working each other, you get peanuts. You think that present
CQ WW is a points server for zones 9, 33, etc?
Wanna close to perfect contest and scoring system? Here it is with well thought
out scoring system and some ideas to make the contesting and reporting more
reflective of the today's situation.
