I can't agree more!  BUT !!!  The fact that CQ gives 10 points for a DX 
QSO is totally out of line.  There should be some sort of point system
that doesn't give the "coasts" more of an advantage than they already
enjoy.  I quit entering the CQ 160 contest for this very reason 5 years 
ago...  Maybe now that we have someone new running the contest,
they will see the error in their ways.
