 ```Forgive the obvious question, but if the contest is fabulous, what needs improving? -----Original Message----- From: cq-contest-bounces@contesting.com [mailto:cq-contest-bounces@contesting.com]On Behalf Of Victor A. Kean, Jr. Sent: Tuesday, January 06, 2009 9:52 PM To: cq-contest@contesting.com 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.
