You have some "stinkin thinkin" going on here especially the part about not
logging the zero pointers.
It is the CQ WW "DX" contest. Giving points for US contacts that are not
multipliers would not be a good thing. Giving points to US stations for
in country contacts will make it just another "domestic contest"
Its pretty common for us at W3PP to work one of these enthusiastic stateside
newbies in the CQWW or ARRL DX tests to say, thanks, this is the second year
in a row that I got you on 160 thru 15 I'll see you on 10
we also get them wanting to work us on all bands in SS.
Don't hold your breath waiting for cq to change the rules.
Rick, CHAMPIONS ADJUST ! Put em in the log and move on. Not logging zero
pointers is definitely the WRONG thing to do.
