 ```You are closing in on a good idea on how to score DX contests, though I'd prefer to whittle the spread down to about a 3:1 ratio. Unfortunately you are talking about the wrong DX contest. Distance scoring along those lines would make far more sense in CQWW, where a 5B4 presently gets 3 points for working an Italian or Ukraine a thousand miles away, but one point for working a JA 6000 miles away. 73 - Jim K8MR In a message dated 6/29/2011 7:34:53 P.M.

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.
