I now believe this equalization technique for power is a really crappy
idea (one I mistakenly backed BTW).  Now you have everyone running as
little power as possible to be competitive, and thus less and less DX
QSOing going on.  Hell, less QSOing period.  It's a damned shame that W8JI
and the like get on in this contest running 5w on a very prime time
weekend for 160M and dont give the opportunity to some guys in Europe and
other places to work them.

Make the points the same regardless of power and give the 3 power classes
their own box.  If you don't, this contest is dead for sure.
