Great idea Bill! It would also be neat to have Cluster/Internet updates of
station scores and rates real-time, so you could see how you're doing
against your competitors. 

OK, there would be some disadvantages (eg. people might quit half-way if
they thought they were being well beat), and it may also need rules
changes, but I reckon most contesters and newbies would welcome this kind
of enhancement to make things even more exciting.
