 The thing that makes the Stew a unique contest is the exchange. As a matter of fact the uniqueness of every contest is the exchange whether it be Stew, or SS, or NAQP. One of the fastest ways to cheapen the Stew is to mimic its, unique, exchange in another contest. Not only would it cheapen the Stew but it would also cheapen the contest that copies it. 73 MAL N7MAL BULLHEAD CITY, AZ http://www.n7mal.com Everyone in the world is entitled to be burdened by my opinion ----- Original Message ----- From: Victor A. Kean, Jr. To: cq-contest@contesting.com Sent: Wednesday, January 07, 2009 2:51 Subject: [CQ-Contest] Improving the Fabulous CQ 160 Contest For the 2010 edition of CQ 160 contest, I propose the following changes as followons to the 2009 changes: 1. Make the exchange 59(9) grid where "grid" is 4 character Maidenhead grid square, a-la the Stew Perry test. 2. Make the QSO point scoring proportional to distance. You could take the Stew Perry scheme and scale it so that the longest possible QSO is 10 (or maybe 12) points. 3. Keep multipliers to encourage DXpeditions and pile-ups. Let the flaming begin.
