It would at least be easier if one could write "ARS" "RC" and "ARC" instead of the full Monty - what a pain. Likewise the names of some clubs eg "Enfield, Southgate and district Wireless, plasticine and electronics society" don't help either.

It certainly doesn't make for a fair contest.

Perhaps the first question is whether 'Club Calls' should be a contest at all? Another option would be a non-competitive all-day get-together for club stations, more like JOTA. That would have the advantage of taking the pressure off, and giving less experienced operators much more chance to participate. (It would also save Paul a job :-)

If it is going to be a contest, then perhaps it should be scored by adding-up the total length of all the club names exchanged, i.e. received *plus* sent? Maybe I'm half-joking here... just not sure which half...
