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.

Everyone in the world is
entitled to be burdened
by my opinion

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.
