Hi pile up rates are nice, likewise that anything works as an antenna when
the solar flux is so high, but....

With high flux numbers, hi rates, high bands opened 24h x day and people
cought by the 10m appeal, the double points on low bands seemed to me the
Y2K ssb WPX has been just a little more than a 10-15-20 contest.

Adding to the above a multiplier system that's not band related either
mostly proportioned to QSO number than anything else I'm asking myself:

1) wouldn't it be more interesting to introduce something that could allow
anything like a real strategy be applied ?
2) will ever I see the IJ4R (wpx 1991, ssb M/S EU record) award from N8BJQ ?
