Department of Random Factoids:

   In 1978 I plotted a scatter diagram of SS scores vs. raw QSO total.  Once a station worked more than 80 QSOs, the graph was close
to a straight line, according to the formula:

points = (156 x QSO) - 7200

   I suspect that modern scores are slightly higher due to the additional multipliers, perhaps (160 x QSO) - 7200, but haven't done
a modern study.
