Not that I really think the scoring system needs changing, but to toss out an 
outside-the-box thought...

How about a scheme where the winner is the entrant whose score has seen the 
greatest improvement over the average of their own five previous entries?

You'd have to limit eligibility to those who've submitted scores greater than 
some threshold -- don't want someone "gaming the system" by making one 
QSO a year for five years, and then making five QSOs and claiming a 500% 

This system would automatically calibrate for geographical variations, among 
other factors.
