This idea was thrown out by Tom (N4KG) only as a "How would you like it" 
scenario.  I don't believe this discussion is a "Lets make everyone 
equal" type of discussion.  That will never happen, why try?  

The idea is to give guys in areas that work a high percentage of ZERO 
point ZERO credit QSO's a reason to be on the air.  This is the only 
contest that encourages country to country QSO's and gives NO credit for 
a high percentage of those QSO's.

Nobody will care about this issue in 3 years.   I dont think that's a 
reason to drop the discussion.  Encouraging contest participation at the 
bottom of the cycle is a good thing.  

"Gee, you guys back west only have to suffer for 3 or 4 years.  What a bunch 
of whiners."  Signed:  Whiskey somebody ONE Blah blah blah.
