I think trying distance-based scoring in the ARRL DX Contest might be really 
fun, presuming that it would be used to assign points to each contact according 
to Great Circle distance and retaining the DXCC "Countries" List as 
multipliers. Please read carefully -- I said "trying." It would definitely give 
me more reason to participate again next year and probably to spend more time 
in the contest. 

I've been doing DX contests for 48 years, from Connecticut, Indiana, Wisconsin, 
New Jersey, Mississippi, and from several Caribbean spots. 

I vote YES. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
