Distance-based is a great concept, but the true equalizer is the adoption of
the CW Sprint QSY rule to a distance-based DX contest.  Then no one gets to
park themselves on a frequency for hours at a time and it's ALL about finding
and making contacts.  Talk about giving the little pistols a chance to beat the
big dogs - that would be it...
