I also miss the line scores in QST, but I don't think that there is
any possibility of convincing the BoD to include them, nor will they
ever return the local news pages at the back of the magazine. They've
"gone corporate" and QST is now a magazine, not the radio club journal
that it was in days gone by. (Rant Off)
Having said that, the line scores for all ARRL sponsored contests ARE
published online already. We don't need to wait for the eQST.
