I found three confirmations in LOTW this morning from zero pointers. I
guess they really wanted to work me for W.A.S. or something. Rick's right,
it's time to get some credit for doing the right thing.
And while we're at it, get your rulers out and check the distance between
St. Paul and Miami and compare that to the distance from Miami to Havana.
The former QSO is zero points, the latter two points. Where's the logic in

> Hi all...New Thread ...at least for the time being....reviewing my log
this morning, I find we made nearly 1600 NA qso's...approx 75% were zero
pointers from the US...my dilemma should I teach these bozo's a lesson and
NIL ( that's making a verb out of a noun, I realize) them all so they do not
> How does one get the word across that when they hunt us down and work us
on all bands they are not helping us in this contest???
> With nearly 1200 zero point qso's and my average hourly rate of just under
90 per hour...that's a lot of wasted hours!!! Its time for the contest
committee from CQ to step to the plate and "do the right thing" its time for
one point per qso in one's own country!!!
