 ```Here goes my take on how to fix ARRL..... assign points on the following formula 1000 miles = 1.0 points 2000 miles = 2.0 3000 miles =3.0 at so forth...so if W1 workd a DL1 and the distance is 2800 miles that equals 2.8 points W4 to DL1 is 3700 miles = 3.7 points W1 to JA = 10,000 miles = 10 points w4 to JA = 12,000 miles = 12 points W1 to FP8 = 370 miles = .37 points W4 to FP8= 1100 miles = 1.1 points It is a fairly easy alogrithym to implement....use the distances provided in the dat file in each computer based on the lat long of the stations. It will need to be tested to see how it affects score...but it is straight line distance based scoring system. I propose to make it fair it should go both ways..i.e. the DL1 station would get the same amount of points also...this would sure level things out. My whinning and complaining for the day.
